Abstract

There are only two passages in Peri Archon where Origen refers to the trinitarian authorship of Scripture. Both of these passages have, however, elicited either little or misleading commentary from the literature. In this article I will show how these two trinitarian expressions play a decisive role in Origen's larger polemic against his main exegetical adversaries, the Jews and the Gnostics. At stake is the identification of the authorship of Scripture and, thus also, its resulting message.
