The Orthodox Christology of St Severus

saint_severus.jpgSt Severus of Antioch is one of the great Fathers of the Oriental Orthodox Churches. In the decades after the Council of Chalcedon in 451 AD it was he, more than any other theologian, who expressed most forcefully and clearly the Orthodox Christology of the Oriental Orthodox Churches. This podcasts considers his Christology, especially as it is found in the letters he sent to a certain Sergius. It considers whether or not he is liable to the accusation of heresy which was laid against him by his opponents, and shows his complete commitment to the Christology of St Cyril of Alexandria.

    “The Orthodox Christology of St Severus” by Fr. Peter Farrington is a sermon which all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, should listen/hear.

    That the continuity of the true faith had been and is still alive can be understood from this podcast.

    In the podcast ‘Why I am an Orthodox Christian’, Fr. Peter, to the joy of all Believers, expounds the genuineness and authenticity of the Bible, the Word of God.

    In this podcast, it is proved that the divinity and humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ is without any confusion.

    That the continuity of the faith of our fathers from St.Athanasius, St.Cyril of Alexandria and others is safeguarded and kept crystal clear by this great philosopher, theologian and lover of truth, St. Saverios.

    Fr. Peter is doing a great service to Christian faith by making available to Christians ‘The Orthodox Christology of St Severus’.

    This podcast strengthens one’s faith in the Lord and releases one from any sort of confusion.
