Abstract

This article argues that John Chrysostom is dependent on Origen in his twelfth homily on 1 Corinthians. Although the bishop does not mention Origen by name, he quotes his interpretation of 1 Cor. 4:6, including Origen’s interpretative gloss on related gospel proof-texts. Extended verbatim quotation along with important differences in interpretative framing suggest that Chrysostom relied on Origen’s interpretation while altering or omitting aspects that did not fit his own homiletical needs.
