Origenes' Johanneskommentar Buch I-V (Studien und Texte zu by Hans G. Thümmel

By Hans G. Thümmel

Origenes hat über einen längeren Zeitraum hinweg Auslegungen zum Johannesevangelium an seinen Mäzen Ambrosius geschrieben. Von dem Werk ist ein knappes Drittel erhalten, wovon Hans G. Thümmel Buch 1 und 2 sowie die erhaltenen Fragmente von Buch four und five behandelt. Sie beziehen sich auf den Prolog des Johannesevangeliums. Die Publikation verbessert vor allem anhand der Korrekturlisten der älteren Rezensionen den textual content und bietet eine Übersetzung. Weitere Klärungen gibt ein Kommentar.Grundlegend für die Ausführungen des Origenes über den Io 1,1 genannten emblems ist die Vorstellung des Schöpfungsmittlers, der gleichermaßen die Zusammenfassung der Schöpfung darstellt. Origenes verbindet ihn mit der Sophia in gleicher Funktion. Das bedeutet aber nicht, daß Origenes abstrakte Metaphysik betreibt. Ihm geht es um den Menschen in seinem erlösungsbedürftigen Zustand, und alles ist darauf angelegt, diesen Zustand zu erklären und dann zu zeigen, wie der Mensch ihn überwinden kann. Origenes entwickelt seine Vorstellungen von der Schöpfung als Folge eines Abfalls und vom Heil als Rückkehr zu Gott. Er bemüht sich, für jede Aussage die exegetische Grundlage darzulegen, wofür er besonders auf Paulus rekurriert. Er ist überzeugt, in allem, was once er sagt, das göttliche Wort auszulegen. So begegnen sich bei Origenes die feste Überzeugung, daß Gott in dem verbal inspirierten textual content spricht, der deshalb auch in grammatischen Feinheiten ernst genommen werden muß, und eine feste Vorstellung davon, wie sich das Drama von Gott und Welt, Abfall und Rückkehr vollzogen hat und vollzieht. Beides steht in einer gewissen Spannung zueinander, erklärt sich aber letztlich gegenseitig.

Union with Christ in the New Testament by Grant Macaskill

By Grant Macaskill

Union with Christ within the New testomony is a research of the union among God and people he has redeemed, because it is represented within the New testomony. In dialog with ancient and systematic theology, furnish Macaskill argues that the union among God and his humans is continually represented by means of the hot testomony authors as covenantal, with the participation of believers within the lifetime of God particularly mediated by way of Jesus, the covenant Messiah: for this reason, it
involves union with Christ. Christ's mediation of divine participation of believers within the lifetime of God particularly mediated by means of Jesus, the covenant Messiah: for that reason, it contains union with Christ. Christ's mediation of divine presence is grounded within the ontology of the Incarnation, the genuine divinity and real
humanity of his individual, and via the complete divine personhood of the Holy Spirit, who unites believers to him in religion. His own narrative of dying and resurrection is known on the subject of the covenant during which God's dealings with humanity are ordered. of their union with him, believers are remodeled either morally and noetically, in order that the union has an epistemic measurement, strongly affirmed via the theological culture yet occasionally harassed by means of students with Platonism.

This account is constructed in shut engagement with the hot testomony texts, learn opposed to Jewish backgrounds, and allowed to notify each other as context. As a 'participatory' realizing of recent testomony soteriology, it really is complex in contrast to different participatory techniques which are right here thought of to be poor, quite the so-called 'apocalyptic' method that's renowned in Pauline scholarship, and people makes an attempt to learn New testomony soteriology when it comes to theosis,
elements of that are however affirmed.

By John Granger Cook

John Granger prepare dinner investigates the earliest interactions among Roman professionals and Christians. The occasions in Claudius' time surrounding 'Chrestos' and attainable Jewish Christians are attention-grabbing yet vague.

The rescript of Hadrian did little to alter Trajan's coverage in regards to the Christians. even though the texts supply no facts for a common legislations opposed to the Christians (probably no such legislation existed till the time of Decius), they do supply a few indication of how magistrates characterised ('constructed') Christians: to Nero and his prefects the Christians have been arsonists and harbored severe hatred of the human race; to Pliny and Trajan they have been those that didn't 'supplicate our gods.'

By Mark Killian

Through ethnographic examine, Killian examines energy in Philadelphia and Berea, Christian Intentional groups whose members dwell in shut proximity with each other to accomplish spiritual values.

By Alan Mugridge
