Homilies on Jeremiah Homily on 1 Kings 28 by Origen ( )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this collection, Origen seeks understanding of the significance of the hostility of the Chosen People towards the Prophet Jeremiah before their captivity in Babylon. Origen in many ways identified with the great prophet and thought of Jeremiah as a type for Christ in the Hebrew Scriptures. Origen realized that Jeremiah came at a crucial time in the history of Israel, the time of captivity, and he views this event and the events around it as pregnant with meaning for the people of his own time
Homilies on Luke Fragments on Luke by Origen ( )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 1,813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Origen assumed that each word had a meaning that is both profound and relevant to the reader - for the Holy Spirit is never trite and what the Holy Spirit says must always touch the hearer. This volume, the first English translation of the extant homilies and of fragments from the commentary on Luke, is an important addition to the growing body of Origen's work now available in English

Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans by Origen ( )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume completes the first English translation of Rufinus's Latin version of Origen of Alexandria's Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans and contains Origen's detailed exegesis of Romans 6:12-16:27." "In Books 6-10 Origen carries through to completion his program, begun in Books 1-5, of defending human freedom and of opposing the natural predestinarian doctrine of the sects founded by the Gnostic heretics Marcion, Valentinus, and Basilides. These schools relied heavily on texts from Paul, interpreted in isolation from the rest of Scripture, not only to deny free will but to support the doctrine that salvation is determined by the nature one receives at birth, whether good or evil. In contrast Origen clarifies passages in Romans by citations from Paul's other letters, from the Gospels, and from the Old Testament. He attempts to construct a coherent and unified "biblical theology." Origen views human beings as chosen or rejected by God deservedly; everyone has it within his own power whether he becomes a servant of God or of sin, a vessel of wrath or of mercy." "Readers will find interesting and thought-provoking discussions of all the important theological themes and terms of Romans: faith, hope, love, works, justification, election, law, Israel, Gentiles, Church, sin, death, flesh, body, glory, etc."--Jacket

Aufforderung zum Martyrium by Origen ( )
5 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the persecution of the Christians under Emperor Maximinus Thrax in 235, Origen directed an urgent call to his friends Ambrosius and Protoctetus to hold fast to the Christian faith. The work provides an example of the literary genre of appeals directed to a wider audience beyond the direct addressees; in the text, Origen takes statements from the Old and New Testaments relating to martyrdom as authorities for his call to remain true to the Christian faith and beware of relapsing into heathenism
Homélies sur le Cantique des cantiques by Origen ( Book )
42 editions published between 1953 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die Homilien zum Buch Genesis by Origen ( )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in German and Latin and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The main focus of Origen|#x00B4;s work was exegesis of the Bible - in large commentaries, but also in sermons, which explore in particular the Old Testament allegorically and typologically. Origen distinguishes between a literal and a figurative, moral-spiritual interpretation of the Holy Scripture. Especially in the case of his sermons on the Book of Genesis it is fascinating to follow how Origen as teacher and pastor attempts to convey to the congregation the many different aspects of holy insights, from cosmology to the allegorical interpretation of Lot|#x00B4;s wife being turned into a pillar of salt
Treatise on the Passover ; and, Dialogue of Origen with Heraclides and his fellow bishops on the Father, the Son, and the Soul by Origen ( Book )
8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
