Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit: Matthew 12:31-32 in Context

ByBrian Pizzalato

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
St. Augustine, speaking about Matthew 12:31-32 where Jesus speaks about the unforgivable sin of blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, says, “There is probably no greater, no more difficult problem to be found in all the Holy Scriptures.” There are such difficult passages in the Sacred Scripture so that we might seek, ask, and knock, as to their meaning lest we become complacent in our journey toward our heavenly homeland. Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is an in depth exploration into Matthew 12:31-32. Crucial to understanding this passage is the larger context of Matthew's gospel, both before and after chapter 12, and a variety of journeys back into the Old Testament. It also considers what St. John Chrysostom, St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas and Pope John Paul II have say about this passage. This is the only way to grasp the meaning of why the sin of blasphemy of the Holy Spirit cannot be forgiven in this life or the life to come. Brian Pizzalato has done us all a favor in writing this book.
