Chapter Summary

This suammry of the second part of the book investigates several divine names or images of the main character of the paschal narrative, Jesus Christ, as offered in the pre- Nicene paschal materials, and the divine functions associated with these names. These early liturgical documents portray Jesus as the Logos and the Divine Glory which saves humanity through its manifestation, in the manner the Hebrew Bible describes Yahweh saving his people through the manifestation of his divine glory. The pre-Nicene paschal writings include as well a liturgical soteriology in which human salvation is envisioned as co-celebration with the angels in front of Jesus' heavenly glory. Jesus is also portrayed as the Divine Image and Heavenly Anthropos who saves humankind (i.e., the image of God) from the prison of Death as seen in the eikonic soteriology of liberation we found in Melito and Pseudo- Hippolytus.

Keywords: divine glory; eikonic soteriology; Jesus Christ; pre-Nicene paschal writings
