(p.194) Chapter 9 Identity and Transformation: Origen
Christian Figural Reading and the Fashioning of Identity

John David Dawson

University of California Press

This chapter discusses Origen's understanding of Christ's identity through his relation to both human believers and to the divine father. It examines the union between Hans Frei and Origen, which is evident in Origen's use of Stoic logic. It looks at Stoic logical distinctions, which can provide two possible ways for interpreting the conceptual structure of John 13:31–32. The chapter determines that Origen, like Frei, insists that Jesus dies his own death, which is a death that his disciples cannot share.

Keywords:   Jesus Christ, identity, Hans Frei, Stoic logic, logical distinctions, conceptual structure, death
