Origen and His Influence on Christian Theology

With the big discovery of some of his lost homilies on the Psalms in the news, I decided to focus on Origen in this week’s episode of The Sacred Page Podcast.

Below is a .pdf containing an outline and notes of this presentation, with references to primary sources cited.

Tree of Righteousness: Reflections on the Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 06.15.12

Through the oracles of the Prophet Ezekiel, God gave his people reason to hope. It would have been a cryptic message to his hearers, long centuries before the Lord’s coming.
