Exegesis of martyrdom

Summarizing aphorisms of my talk on the historical background of the Apostles’ creed last Saturday:

1. Adapted from Tom Wright’s dictum:

“Christ is Lord,
and Caesar is not.”

2. “We make the best sense of doctrine in the historical context of the early Church if we see it as an exegesis of martyrdom.” (Rowan Williams)
