Early Christian Commentary is an online resource devoted to the study of the theology and history of early Christianity.
We currently host the following resources for the study of early Christianity:
- Early Christian Commentary – A Verse by Verse New Testament Commentary from the Early Christians
- Early Christian Dictionary – A Reference Guide to Topics Discussed by the Early Christians
- Ante-Nicene Texts – A Comprehensive Collection of Early Christian Writings
- Eusebius Texts – A Collection of Writings by the Church Historian Eusbeius
- Audio Books – Audio Recorded Readings of Various Early Christian Writings
This website has the following goals:
1. To present the excerpted comments of the early Christians on the Bible.
2. To renew Gospel proclamation and Christian obedience based upon orthodox exegesis of the Scriptures.
3. To intensify the study of the Scriptures among Christians who desire to think with the early church about the teachings of the Bible.
4. To demonstrate the value of the patristic writers with regard to the study of textual criticism.
5. To stimulate Christian scholarship toward further inquiry into the interpretations of the early Christian writers.
