Hans G. Thümmel deals with Books 1 and 2 as well as the preserved fragments of Books 4 and 5 of Origen's interpretations of John. Using the corrigendum from older reviews, the publication improves the text and provides a translation.
Over a long period of time, Origen wrote interpretations of John to his patron Ambrosius. About one third of this work has been preserved, of which Hans G. Thümmel deals with Books 1 and 2 as well as the preserved fragments of Books 4 and 5. These refer to the prologue to the Gospel of John. Using the corrigendum from older reviews, the publication improves the text and provides a translation. Further clarification is given in the commentary. An essential element in Origen's explanations of the Logos in John 1.1 is the concept of the intermediary between God and his creation, who within himself constitutes the entire creation. For Origen, what was important was the condition of human beings in their need for salvation, and everything is designed to explain this condition and then to show how human beings can overcome it.
