The Christology of John Chrysostom
Lawrenz, Melvin E. III


The considerable corpus of Chrysostom's writings and homilies gives evidence of the tensions and debates in late fourth and early fifth century Christian thought about the person of Christ. These interpretations deal with the completeness, integrity and relationship of the divine and human natures of Christ. This volume maintains that although Chrysostom's exegetical method is essentially the same as other theologians from Antioch, his underlying theological perspective of Christ is closer to the Alexandrian emphasis on one divine subject of the incarnate life of Christ. The method used is the examination of the nearly five hundred homilies and homiletical commentaries on the books of the New Testament Chrysostom treated, and his polemical homilies against the Neo-Arians.
