He is commenting on John 8:52, where the Jews aﬃrm that Abraham and the prophets are dead, and he begins by pointing out that the Jews had no understanding of what Paul says in Rom 5. ” But they did not understand the life of Abraham and the prophets nor that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob was the God not of their dead but of the living (Matt 22:32).
The martyrdom of pionius According to the martyrology, Pionius was a presbyter and teacher of the Catholic church in Smyrna and was put to death during the Decian persecution on March 12, 250. The account that we possess includes lengthy speeches of Pionius, and even if we assume that they are literary creations of the author, they tell us a good deal about what Christians were saying in Asia Minor in the middle of the third century. To be sure, there is room for skepticism regarding what the narrative tells us.
Justin’s defense of the resurrection appears in 1 Apol. ” In Dial. ” One other passage has at least the possibility of supporting the point I am making. At the beginning of his interpretation of Ps 21 (Dial. 99) Justin treats the third verse of the psalm, which speaks of crying to God day and night, as a reference to Christ’s prayer in Gethsemane, the agony in the garden. ” Justin takes a further step and claims that Christ knew his fate ahead of time, just as we need not suppose God ignorant when he asked Adam where he was or inquired of Cain about Abel.
