The Irenaeus Testimony to the Fourth Gospel

Its Extent, Meaning, and Value
Series: Analecta Gorgiana 183
ISBN: 978-1-60724-277-2
One of the issues consistently plaguing New Testament scholars is the date of the Gospel of John. No consensus exists on this thorny dilemma. Looking at the world around the Bible, extrabiblical testimony often provides evidence for such questions. Insights drawn from Irenaeus are used by Lewis to help shed light on the topic. Noting the extent to which Irenaeus bears on the fourth Gospel, Lewis discusses the potential authors of John that could have been known by Irenaeus. Ending with modern conclusions to the issue, Lewis provides a useful summary of state of Irenaeus studies around the beginning of the twentieth century.

Miaphysite Christology

An Ethiopian Perspective
ISBN: 978-1-60724-528-5
As in the case of the christology of the other non-Chalcedonian Oriental Orthodox Churches, Ethiopian christology is usually nicknamed as monophysite christology - an erroneous christological position which indicates the absorption of the humanity of Christ by its divinity. Disproving such a pejorative designation, this book contends that the christological position of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church should correctly be termed as miaphysite christology, which highlights the one-united nature of the Word of God incarnate. Besides, the book proves the orthodoxy of Ethiopian christology, demonstrating how it is based on the christology of St. Cyril of Alexandria.
