Chapter Summary

In the field of Patristic studies, one of those areas of new interest and development today is clearly early Christian exegesis: how the writers of the early Church, whose works have survived, interpreted and applied to their lives the Hebrew and Greek writings that came to be recognized, over the course of the first three centuries or so of the Church's life, as the Christian canon of Scripture. One might illustrate the reliance on Christ as the unifying center of Patristic Biblical interpretation by considering the preaching or Biblical commentaries of almost any of the Fathers as well as their treatment of Scripture in larger works of controversy.

Keywords: Christian exegesis; patristic biblical interpretation
