Christ's self-identification with 'the least of mine' (Matthew 25:40,45) according to Augustine of Hippo: Is this the humility of God?
Canning, Raymond. (2010). Christ's self-identification with 'the least of mine' (Matthew 25:40,45) according to Augustine of Hippo: Is this the humility of God? Australian Ejournal of Theology. 15, pp. 1 - 16.
One of the foremost Augustinian scholars today provides insight into Augustines understanding of Christs self-identification with the least of mine in Matthew 25, an understanding that has universal as distinct from specific Christian designation. He further demonstrates how Matthew 25 can be used as a hermeneutical key for interpreting Augustine more broadly. The final question focuses on the divine self-emptying of Christ in the Incarnation and its link to Augustines emphasis on the unity between Christ and the poor.
