About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from History of the Development of the Doctrine of the Person of Christ, Vol. 1 <p/>The Christian mind advanced along three great lines towards a fuller understanding Of the work or Office of Christ; and to these three great lines correspond the three great Churches the Greek, the Romish, and the Protestant. <p/>The Greek Church, seeking after wisdom, regarded Christ as the manifestation of the truth: in its eyes, He was the personal embodiment of wisdom, which, being free from falsity and error, is also free from sin. It regarded Christ predominantly from the point of view Of His prophetical Office, though t without cherishing the hope that, at the end of the days, He would prove His might as a King in that conﬂict with evil and death, to which the victory gained over Satan by Christ in a supra-historical struggle, which took place outside of the sphere within which humanity moves, formed the pre lude. The orthodox Church did, it is true, cling zealously and faithfully to the divinity and humanity Of Christ; for, in deed, the doctrine that the Son, the eternal Wisdom, became man, forms a part of the true doctrine of the Person of Christ. Subsequently to the fifth century, however, few Of the Greek Fathers were able to give a deeper reason for the incarnation; than that the best means Of exhibiting and teaching the truth - that is, God - was that the invisible Wisdom should become visible. Redemption (in its subjective aspect), and faith, are therefore treated almost solely from the theoretical point Of View, as consisting in such an acquaintance with, or recognition of, the dogma, as implies it to be true. Placing the chief good in kwledge, the Greek Church directed its main efforts, as a Church, during the period when it still displayed mental activity, to giving its dogmas greater precision Of form. The Episcopate was the means employed to this end. <p/>About the Publisher <p/>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
