Join us at Christ Reformed Church tonight at 7:30 p.m. when Rev. Marcelo Souza continues his Academy series entitled: Ancient Church History, An Overview. Rev. Souza’s third lecture in this series is entitled: “Alexandria, Origen, Persecution, Constantine, Arianism”
This class will cover early church history from the birth of the Church to the first seven ecumenical councils. Our study will investigate both ecclesiastical history and historical theology. Some of the questions that will be addressed include: How did doctrine develop? What issues did each ecumenical council address? How does the theology of the early church affect us today? What heresies keep reappearing? What do we learn from the past so we don’t repeat the same mistakes in the future?
The textbooks for this series are: Early Christian Doctrines: Revised Edition by J. N. D. Kelly and The Early Church by Henry Chadwick.
