- God bless all: Searching in my Dictionaries collection for "sons of God", I came across very interesting information: "The only passage where any difficulty has been felt (and that only for dogmatic reasons) about interpreting the phrase in this way is Gn 6:2. Onḳelos, Beresh. rab., Saadya, Ibn Ezra, et al., take it to mean there ‘sons of princes,’ ‘mighty men’; Theod., Chrys., Jerome, Aug., Luther, Calvin, Hengstenberg, et al., understand by ‘the sons of God’ the pious (Sethite) portion of the human race, which is opposed to the (Cainite) ‘daughters of men.’ Neither of these interpretations suits either the context or the usage of the Heb. phrase." Selbie, J. A. (1911–1912). SONS OF GOD. In J. Hastings, J. A. Selbie, A. B. Davidson, S. R. Driver, & H. B. Swete (Eds.), A Dictionary of the Bible: Dealing with Its Language, Literature, and Contents Including the Biblical Theology (Vol. 4, p. 598). New York; Edinburgh: Charles Scribner’s Sons; T. & T. Clark. I wonder if someone has created a "Theologian's works" collections so that one can look what different theologians have said about a concept or term? Based on the above quote maybe the rule could be: Author:(Irenaeus, Tertullian, Jerome, Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Wesley, Barth etc.) So that one could find quickly the different perspectives, insights, positions some early and modern brothers / sisters had / have.
- try opening your favorite bible to Gen 6.2 and then open a passage guide to the same verse. Then go to ancient literature section. You should have references to the judaic and early fathers there. You can always form a theological collection as well if you choose. The later theologians would not be in that section. The latest beta has a theology section in the passage guide that will help you as well without creating a collection.
- God bless you John: Thanks for the tips. I posted in denomination tags the following: Has anyone put together a document listing the 10 top theologians in each denomination / tradition?
