Commentary on the twelve prophets by Theodore( Book )

11 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than one modern scholar has been prepared to class Theodore as "the foremost exponent of Antiochene exegesis." Yet not long after his death in 428 - coincidentally, but significantly, the year Nestorius acceded to the see of Constantinople - Theodore became the object of intemperate criticism by the likes of Cyril of Alexandria for his Christological views. His works were condemned by the fifth ecumenical council of 553, and only the commentary on the Twelve Prophets, here appearing in English for the first time, survives entirely in Greek." "It would not have been this work that earned Theodore an unsavory reputation. Though he is typically Antiochene in focusing on the historical background of each of the Twelve prophets, and thus avoids the elaborate search after levels of spiritual meaning he would have found in the Alexandrian Didymus, he engages in no Christological debate, simply setting the divine economy as the context of the prophets' ministry. He moves systematically through the Twelve in the order they appear in the Antioch text (itself an object of interest to students of the Septuagint), despite his lack of Hebrew and of familiarity with the genre of apocalyptic."--Jacket

Commentary on Psalms 1-81 by Theodore( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Psalms", along with the "Gospels", were the staple diet of early Christians eager to develop their spiritual life. From the school of Antioch we are fortunate to have at least partial commentaries on the "Psalms" from its four major figures, including Theodore, bishop of Mopsuestia in the early fifth century and later regarded as The Interpreter by the Syriac church. A work of his early career, this "Psalms" commentary shows Theodore under the influence of his master Diodore in adopting a historical interpretation, referring individual psalms to David's life, later kings of Israel, Assyrians, and Babylonians, but rarely to Christ. This commentary illustrates the typical hermeneutical strengths and weaknesses of Antiochene interpretation. Biblical and patristic scholars in a range of disciplines will be pleased to have this significant work available from The Interpreter. The paperback edition is available from the Society of Biblical Literature

Commentary of Theodore of Mopsuestia on the Nicene creed by Theodore( Book )

5 editions published between 1932 and 2009 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Commentary of Theodore of Mopsuestia on the Nicene Creed is an important document of an instrumental age in the development of Christianity. Theodore (c. 350-428) was clearly the most important biblical scholar of his age. While his theology eventually led to his loss of favor among some branches of the church, Theodore was at least partially responsible for three church councils held to deal with his ideas, including those of Ephesus and Chalcedon. Mingana has published here, as Woodbrooke Studies 5, for the first time a document that had previously been lost and which contains Theodore's observations on the outcome of the Council of Nicaea, the Nicene Creed
