FORT LAUDERDALE, FL— The April 2003 Schedule of Programs from the Orthodox Radio Network “Come Receive the Light” has been announced:
Topic: The Third Ecumenical Council
Guest: Fr. John Behr
Fr. John Behr returns for Part 4 of his 8 part series on the Ecumenical Councils.
In this program Fr. John will introduce us to the Third Ecumenical Council which was held in Ephesus, Asia Minor in 431 under Emperor Theodosius II, grandson of Theodosius the Great. Approximately 200 Bishops were present at this council which was chiefly concerned with Nestorianism.
According to the Council; Nestorianism overemphasized the human nature of Jesus Christ at the expense of the divine. In addition, the Council also declared the text of the Nicene Creed decreed at the First and Second Ecumenical Councils to be complete and forbade any additional change (addition or deletion) to it. Be sure to tune for a very informative program as we continue the series on the teachings of the Seven Ecumenical Councils.
