It is usually thought that Mark was the first Gospel to have been written, most likely in the late 60s of the first century AD, at the time of the Jewish war with Rome. Priority was given to revitalize local cultures and to indigenizing mission churches within the wider context of African reformation in literature, philosophy, and history.

And more importantly, such a confused understanding of the Nicene Creed (and this understanding is widespread, as evident in Foster's reliance on Hodgson's peculiar understanding of the Athanasian Creed, and, for another prime example, see Richard Cartwright's On the Logical Problem of the Trinity ) is anachronistic in the extreme and utterly forsakes the theological source of the Creed: Augustine of Hippo. According to common Catholic understandings, Mary the mother of Jesus was preserved by God from the stain of original sin by being born totally sinless.

Saint Severus, the exiled Patriarch of Antioch who took refuge in Egypt, is considered one of the key post- Chalcedon Theologians of the Oriental Orthodox Church. In commending "Guidelines on Dialogue" to its members, the Central Com mittee of the World Council of Churches noted that "To enter into dialogue requires an opening of mind and heart to others.

No one can come to the Father except through Me. Then, in the last paragraph above, notice that he even uses the words "two gods"! In this process Christ may not have always understood how the individual pieces of God's puzzle were to finally come together. The question is irrelevent to sams article. This is a christological verse written by Paul and we are trying to see what Paul is saying about Jesus This is not a red herring and is very relevant, it seems you are not following my argument.

Will return to God, upon completing his mission (7:33; 16:5). In the contemporary setting, it is especially crucial for theologians to investigate the scriptural witness afresh, to retrieve classical criteria and categories from the tradition, and to consider the generative pressure of soteriology for Christology proper.
