Foundations 2 - Origen of Alexandria

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Series: Foundations: The Life, Times, and Theology of the Early Church

Category: History

In this second part of our teaching series we look at the life, times, and theology of Origen of Antioch. One of the most prolific writers of the Early Church, Origen was also heavily influenced by Platonic philosophy. He wrote many commentaries on Scripture, and perhaps is most lasting legacy was his four-tiered interpretive model for understanding the Bible, which became the standard in the western (medieval) church for the next 1300 years until Martin Luther.
