Abstract

ALBORNOZ OLIVARES, Luis Mauricio. SALVATION AS GOD'S VISION PROPHETIC KEY APPROACH TO THE CONCEPT OF SALVATION IN ST IRENAEUS OF LYON. Veritas [online]. 2011, n.24, pp.165-185. ISSN 0718-9273.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-92732011000100008.

The Son, as the Word, was already manifested in the Old Testament in the revelation that was occurring progressively in history. This is what culminates in the incarnation of the same Word and continues showing God in the flesh and calls him Father. St Irenaeus of Lyons proposes that the Old Testament writings offer a key to how the prophetic vision, that as figure, is relevant for understanding salvation that is given by God. Indeed, the prophets of the Old Testament enter into salvation by means of vision. They have participated in the vision of God, through which they access to the teachings of the Word. The Trinitarian economy of salvation, which is here understood as part of a unique purpose, permits sustaining this assertion and open a way, in accord with the Lyonese's interpretation, to the Trinity.

Keywords : Salvation; vision; prophecy; Gnosticism; participation; figure.
