In The Apostle's Creed , the ancient debates that led to the formulation of its twelve pronouncements are examined. The richness of early Christian thought is explored by looking at the ideas behind each creedal pronouncement and tracing the theological debates that inspired each statement.
Early Christian theology is not treated as 'unanimous,' but as pluralistic. The polyphony of theological opinion, which characterized the Christianity of this period, is therefore highlighted and celebrated. In explaining the context that gave birth to the creed, this study refers to the testimony of various 'witnesses' of those theological arguments. This includes opponents of the apostolic and church Fathers: The book is structured along the Apostles' Creed: Introduction 1.
And in Jesus Christ his only son our Lord 3. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, 4. Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried 5.

From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead 8. I believe in the Holy Ghost 9. The Holy Catholic Church The Communion of Saints The forgiveness of sins The resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. That statement by the author is true for his own passion about Christian doctrine and early church history.
Piotr Ashwin-Siejkowski writes for students, parishioners, and a wider group of readers; accordingly he provides an introduction to the theology of the Apostles' Creed and its terminology, supported by notes to introductory articles and a glossary to help beginners.
The book could be the basis of church classes for members or catechetical instruction as the creed was in its origin in preparation for baptism or confirmation. It is not a history of the creed but a commentary on its contents. The author reminds us that Christianity has an intellectual content and is much more than an emotional adherence to Jesus. His abundant references to second and third-century Christian authors result in a systematic summary of basic Christian theology.
The author sets the 'proto-orthodox' thinkers over against pagan, Jewish, and heretical views on each topic. In each dispensation, man is given a responsibility.
With each failure comes judgment. But God never gave up on man and forgets His covenants and offer man another chance dispensation. The Christian church always uses three words to describe God. God does not have size or spatial dimensions and is present in every point of space and time with His whole being. Jer , Nothing we think or speak or do is secret from God.
Hebrew Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Psalms 8, 19, Three psalms that focus on God as Creator. Isaiah Some implications of the fact that God created everything. Revelation The worship due to the Creator.
It pleased God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, for the manifestation of the glory of His eternal power, wisdom and goodness, in the beginning, to create, or to making of nothing, the world, and all things therin, whether visible or invisible, in the space of six days, and all very good.
In early Christian art, the hand of God was shown appearing from a cloud with fingers gesturing a blessing. The hand is also used as a metaphor for support, security, judgement, vengeance and punishment. The hand of God creates and protects, but if thwarted, it also destroys. The right hand of God is the hand of blessing and the left hand, the hand of cursing. Fire is used as a metaphor for cleansing and spiritual power.
The wheel was used on early Christian gravestones as a symbol of God and eternity. What are some of the names you will give to God?
What will be some adjectives you will use to describe God? Write it down in the space below. Now calm yourself. Take some time to meditate on the attributes and names of God you have written down.

This central core is surrounded by a concentric ring, containing doctrines of secondary importance.
Doctrines in the central core is not negotiable, but there could be tolerance within the church on matters outside. What do you think are the doctrines that make up of the central core?
What do you think are the doctrines that are of secondary importance and thus negotiable or tolerable? God the Son: His Identity and Birth.

Eternal, and yet born of a woman. King of angels, and yet the reputed son of Joseph. Jesus is the one in whom all human history and the promises of God find fulfillment. Jesus has a special relationship with God. The Jews were furious with Jesus for calling God his father, for they recognised that he was making himself equal with God John In early Christian paintings, light or source of light denotes divine presence.
Light is primarily used as a symbol for Christ. In some churches, it is common to put two candles on both side of the altar or communion table to signify the two natures of Christ- divine and human.

The most common are the Latin cross, with the intersecting horizontal post about three-quarters of the way up the vertical. The Greek cross, in which the horizontal post bisects the vertical. The Patriarchal cross which has two graduated transverse arms. The Eastern Orthodox cross which has two horizontal arms and a third slanted arm. The Celtic cross which has a circle enclosing the cross beams. The banner or flay-usually white with a red cross-is the symbol of victory over death carried by the resurrected Christ.
This symbol is derived from the vision of Constantine the Great and his adoption of a cruciform on the Roman standard. Its life cycle from caterpillar to crystalis to butterfly symbolises the life, death and resurrection of Christ. The Greek uses the same word for soul and butterfly: pysche. This butterfly emerges from its cocoon only at Easter, as if from the tomb.

The Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand uses the Apostles' Creed in its baptism rite in spite of the reservations of some of its members regarding the phrase "born of the virgin Mary".
The Apostles' Creed is recited by candidates, sponsors and congregation, each section of the Creed being an answer to the celebrant's question, "Do you believe in God the Father God the Son, God the Holy Spirit? Do you believe in Jesus Christ, His only son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.
