1 Pollard, T.E. Johannine Christology and the Early Church
Cambridge Cambridge University Press 1970 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
A near Fine unmarked copy in blue cloth boards apart from a dedication inscription from the Parish of St. Mary Magdalene, Enfield to front endpaper. Dustjacket is VG+ and is not price clipped. Uniform with the Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series (13). xii and 359 pages. Professor Pollard attempts to show how the early Church interpreted the Gospel of John and its witness to the person of Christ. The two paradoxes implicit in John's theology - the distinction between the Father and the Son in the unity of the Godhead, and the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ - were developed in varying ways and the resultant heresies arose from attempts to deny one element or the other in each paradox. In their refutation of the heresies, on the other hand, the Fathers struggled to keep both elements of the paradoxes in equipoise. The different traditions came into conflict in the controversy which raged around the figure of Arius and his supporters in the fourth century, of which the climax came in the debate about the views of Marcellus of Ancyra. The book is a major contribution to the study of patristic exegesis of St. John's Gospel in the formulation of Christology and also to the study of the history of the doctrine of the Trinity and of the person of Christ.
