  2. Commentaries on the Prophets, by Theodoret of Cyrus, Vol 2: Ezekiel

    Commentaries on the Prophets, by Theodoret of Cyrus, Vol 2: Ezekiel

    $29.95

    Theodoret of Cyrus has given us three commentaries on the Prophets. Volume One includes commentaries on Jeremiah, Baruch and the Book of Lamentations. This volume, Volume Two includes a commentary on the prophet Ezekiel. Volume Three includes a commentary on the Twelve Prophets. "It has been observed that "the Antiochenes were fascinated by prophecy" (Frances M. Young). The last of the great biblical commentators of the school of Antioch, Theodoret wrote works on all the prophets during his years as bishop of Cyrus. Though caught up in the theological currents in the period between the Church councils of Ephesus in 431 and Chalcedon in 451, he could claim in a letter late in that period to have commented on "all the prophets, the psalter and the apostle." Fortunately, all Theodoret's commentaries have survived, probably owing to his proverbial moderation that attracted none of the hostility responsible for the loss of works of some of his Antiochene predecessors. His style of commentary, the hermeneutics of his school and the distinctive Antioch text of the Old Testament are of particular interest to modern scholars and readers. Learn More

  5. Greek Patristic and Eastern Orthodox Interpretations of Romans

    Greek Patristic and Eastern Orthodox Interpretations of Romans

    $45.00

    This volume of essays explores major interpretations of Romans by Greek Fathers. This collection of essays integrates scholarly and scriptural interpretations, Eastern Orthodox biblical scholarship, together with biblical interpretations throughout church history. Unlike the Western interpretations that read Romans in terms of theological anthropology, the Greek Fathers do not presuppose such a concept and therefore each of the articles in this volume invites Western scholars and students to re-read Paul's letter with new eyes: with a greater sensitivity to the nuances of the Greek text; with an openness to envision what Paul is saying from very different theological and hermeneutical perspectives; and with the awareness that the Greek Fathers addressed particular contextual issues of their time. Table of Contents Introduction/Vasile Mihoc, Facultatea de Teologie 'Andrei Saguna', Sibiu, Romania. Basic Principles of Orthodox Biblical Hermeneutics as Rooted in the Greek Fathers' Interpretation/Daniel Patte, Vanderbilt University. How the Essays in this Volume Complement Each Other/Matthew W. Bates, University of Notre Dame. Prosopographic Exegesis and Narrative Logic: Paul, Origen, and Theodoret of Cyrus on Psalm 69:22-23/Steven DiMattei, University of Houston.

Lawrence Farley explores the Christian significance of every book of the Old Testament. Learn More

    Jesus Christ Is The Same Yesterday And Today And Unto the Ages

    $19.00

    In this latest and, in every respect, meaningful study, Bishop Athanasius, in the manner of the Holy Fathers, and firmly relying upon the Apostles John and Paul, argues that the Old Testament name of God, “YHWH,” as revealed to Moses at Sinai, was translated by both Apostles (both being Hebrews) into the language of the New Testament in a completely original and articulate manner.

  10. Jesus and the Eyewitnesses

    Jesus and the Eyewitnesses

    $37.95

    Out of stock

    This momentous book argues that the four Gospels are closely based on the eyewitness testimony of those who personally knew Jesus.
