Patristic Nectar Publications is pleased to present a new seven-lecture series by Reverend Doctor Calinic Berger entitled The Divine Identity of Jesus. The highly-esteemed hieromonk-scholar Father Calinic sets forth the majestic and high-Christology of the early Church. In these lectures, Father Cal refutes the secular criticisms of Orthodox Christology and reveals that Jesus Himself taught His Divine Identity to His disciples, that the early church both honored and preached this high Christology, and that this Christology is codified in the pages of the New Testament and the Nicene Creed. Along the way, he also reveals the secular quest of the historical Jesus to be completely vacuous, unpacks the historical theological witness about Jesus in the Pre-Nicene Church, through Nicea, Ephesus, and to the Fourth Ecumenical Council at Chalcedon.
Here is a feast of faith for Christians sure to illumine our hearts and minds concerning the deity of our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ.
The titles of the seven lectures are as follows:
Lecture #1 The Quest for the Historical Jesus
Lecture #2 The Early High Christology of the New Testament – Part 1
Lecture #3 The Early High Christology of the New Testament – Part 2
Lecture #4 Early Witnesses: The Pre-Nicene and Post-Nicene Church
