In today's episode, Dr. Alan Strange delves into the life and teachings of one of the most prominent figures in early Christianity: John Chrysostom. Often referred to as the "Golden Mouth" due to his captivating and powerful preaching, John was the archbishop in the city of Constantinople and a prolific writer of sermons and commentaries on the Bible.
Dr. Strange explores Chrysostom's humble beginnings as a hermit in the desert and how he rose to become one of the most influential voices in the early church. He also examines his controversial views on wealth, power, and corruption and how these beliefs made him a target of both the imperial court and rival bishops.
