40 – The First Three Centuries

December 23, 2017

Episode Link

Hi Folks, I need your help. More specifically listener questions. Now that we’ve reached the end of the third century, we’re going to take an extended break from the narrative and focus on key topics related to the first three centuries of the early Church. Here’s a list of what will be covered:

  1. Geographic Spread of Christianity up to c. 300 A.D.
  2. Scriptures, Canons, and Interpretations
  3. The Trinity and Christology
  4. Salvation and Anthropology
  5. Afterlife, Endtimes, and the Spiritual Realm
  6. Christian Life and Practice
  7. Orthodoxy and Heresy
  8. Early Church and Judaism
  9. Christianity and Greco-Roman Society
  10. Q&A episode

Please send me, via email, comment, or PM, any questions you have related to the show. Feel free to ask me just about anything and I’ll try to incorporate your questions into my research. If your question doesn’t get covered in one of the topical episodes, I’ll be sure to include it in the Q&A episode at the end. Please keep in mind that these episodes will take me longer to research and produce. Thanks again for all your support!

    I think I would add liturgy and liturgical theology to that list.. But the list itself is very impressive & comprehensive..

    • Absolutely Mehmet! We’ll be covering liturgy and liturgical theology in the episode on Christian life and practice.

    I’m fascinated by the use of iconography in the early church, often hidden underground as in catacombs. Such rich symbolism, almost a language in and of itself. Can you discuss how the earliest Christians used artistic images to communicate to each other and to “spread the Word?”

    • Hi Steph. We will absolutely cover early Christian art and symbolism. The catacombs of Rome will definitely be included in that discussion

    I’ve always wondered about the different practices in the East and West where it comes to the Eucharist. Specifically: why is it the case that we in the West use unleavened bread whereas they use leavened bread in the East? How did this come to be in the first place (did the apostles have different practices to one another)? Was there ever a massive controversy about the difference?

    Cheers.

    • We will absolutely discuss the Eucharist and differences in practice. Liturgical topics have been specifically requested by other listeners as well so I’ll be sure to dive deeper into the subject.
