Chapter Summary

This chapter provides concluding remarks for this book. Justin Martyr exemplifies an orthodox position which is faithful to the Biblical revelation through the Old Testament prophets and through the apostles of Jesus. The problem which the Apologist poses for the church is that of presenting the truth of God as something less than the Bible proclaims. The writer of Evangelium Veritatis expresses an overt thorough-going realism which, while accepting Divine revelation as a base, constructs an ontological system which exceeds by far the bounds of Biblical data. The conclusion summarizes three areas of concern such as The Father and Jesus, The world and evil and Man and redemption, which relate respectively to Christology, cosmology, and soteriology.

Keywords: Evangelium Veritatis; Justin Martyr; Old Testament; ontological system
