Series Information
Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture: Old Testament, 7Ė8


Description: The church fathers employed the Psalms widely. In liturgy they used them both as hymns and as Scripture readings. Within them they found pointers to Jesus both as Son of God and as Messiah. They also employed the Psalms widely as support for other New Testament teachings, as counsel on morals and as forms for prayer. Especially noteworthy was their use of Psalms in the great doctrinal controversies. The Psalms were used to oppose subordinationism, modalism, Arianism, Apollinarianism, Nestorianism,, Eutychianism and Monophysitism, among others. Readers of these selections, some appearing in English for the first time, will glean from a rich treasury of deep devotion and profound theological reflection.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Writings, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Psalms, History of Interpretation
