Presvytera and Dr. Jeannie Constantinou guides us through Holy Scripture with the eyes of the Church Fathers.

    Christ, Adam, and Salvation

    Christ, Adam, and Salvation

    In Romans 5, Paul explains the role of Christ in salvation in relation to Adam. How can Christ be a "type" of Adam, since Adam sinned and Christ did not? Does this chapter support the interpretation of universal salvation? Since all "died in Adam," will all "live in Christ"? Western Christian understanding of sin and its effects on the human race was strongly influenced by Augustine's interpretation of Romans 5:12. From Augustine's faulty interpretation, the concept of "original sin" was born and took root in the West. How are Catholic and Protestant concepts of sin and salvation different from the Orthodox understanding? What do these different ideas of sin reveal about our different conceptions of God and His relationship to humanity?

    Paul, Abraham, and the Law

    Paul, Abraham, and the Law

    Dr. Constantinou continues her study of Romans 3 and the meaning of justification. As we move forward into chapter 4, St. Paul introduces the figure of Abraham, considered by Jews to be a model of Torah obedience. Paul's insight into Abraham's character led to a profound shift in his thoughts about the Law and created an entirely different kind of life for Gentile believers.

    Word Study: Justification

    Word Study: Justification

    Dr. Constantinou continues her study of Romans by delving into chapter 3, in which Paul explains that no one is righteous in the sight of God. Fr. Costas will join us for an in-depth discussion of the meaning of that very important word in Romans: "righteousness" or "justification." What is the history and nuance, Greek and Jewish, behind this word? What did it mean in Paul's culture to be "justified"?

    Reason to Boast?

    Reason to Boast?

    Dr. Constantinou continues her study of Romans. Did anyone notice that what St. Paul said in chapter 1 about the connection between mind and behavior is completely consistent with Orthodox theology and spirituality? In chapter 2, Paul continues his analysis and we will turn our attention toward the Jews. The pagans were very proud of their worldly wisdom. Did the Jews have any reason to "boast" according to Paul?

Inspiring Podcast

As a long time listener of Dr. Jeannie, this is a wonderful podcast to learn and understand the New Testament. Well worth the time to listen and listen again.

Good

This podcast is fantastic but often there are long and repetitive tangents to make a point. When they are organized and focused these are some of the best series I can find.
