Dec 27, Evan Leach rated it it was ok Shelves: This was a bit disappointing. Both featured well constructed arguments, a good sense of logic, and a surprisingly strong literary sensibility. Dialogue with Trypho was much more of a slog. The premise is that Justin, a Christian, is engaging a Jewish audience led by Trypho in an informal discussion about their respective faiths although Justin does far This was a bit disappointing. The premise is that Justin, a Christian, is engaging a Jewish audience led by Trypho in an informal discussion about their respective faiths although Justin does far and away the bulk of the talking.
But, the actual argument was pretty mediocre reading. Unlike the Apologies, this is a long work, and the pages didn’t exactly fly by. This one is for completionists only. View all 6 comments. May 20, Coyle rated it really liked it.
One of the early church classics, Dialogue with Trypho is written in the Platonic style which is appropriate, given that Justin started out as a Platonist as a letter to a friend of his relating a dialogue he had with a Jew named Trypho. In the course of the dialogue, we see 1 Justin’s conversion narrative which is one of the best from the dalogue world. This book definitely makes me want to find copies of Justin’s Apologies and read those though of course a lot of the enjoyment of reading any ancient text comes from its being well translated, which this work is.
Most important, however, is the theme that runs through the dialogue: That is why philosophy provides the context for the dialogue, then, as well as now, philosophy has been the primary place of the search for truth.
As Justin says echoing Plato But what greater deed Man cannot have prudence without philosophy and straight thinking. Thus, every man should be devoted to philosophy and should consider it the greatest adn most noble pursuit; all other pursuits are only of second- or third-rate value, unless they are connected with philosophy. Then they are of some value and should be a pproved; if they are devoid of philosophy and not connected with it in any way, they then become base and coarse pursuits to those who practice them.
Thus, Justin concludes the dialogue I can wish you no greater blessing than this, gentlemen, that, realizing that wisdom is given to every man through this way [the Gospel], you also may tryphl day come to believe entirely as we do that Jesus is the Christ of God.

I personally think this account is true. Justin Martyr was a Philosopher and Plato follower, but his run in with a Jew changes his life and perspective on Christianity. This ttrypho absolutely fascinating to read since it was kinda like an intellectual debate from really long ago.

Aug 12, Jake rated it really liked it. Justin Martyr’s exegesis might not fit the standards of grammatical-historical method, but his theological commitments to the unity of the canon under the Christ event are timeless and should be emulated in every generation of interpretation. This is a good introduction into ante-Nicene exegesis and apologetics. One of the most significant works of the 2nd Century, the Dialogue with Trypho offers a dialogus demonstration of early Christian readings of the Old Testament.
Jan 11, Alcyone marked it as to-read. From the bits and pieces I read over Mariah’s shoulders it sounds really good. This guy is a genius.
Oct 21, Tina rated it really liked it Shelves: Mar 12, James rated it really liked it. An inspiring example of a man who has memorized chapter upon chapter of Scripture which he uses to explain and defend the Gospel. The best approach to dialohue I have read.
Oct 08, Wyatt Graham rated it it was amazing. A great translation of a Christian classic. This alongside Irenaeus’ “On the Apostolic Preaching” form two of the earliest whole Bible theologies, both of which show how early Christians read and understood the Old Testament. In short, Christ is the key to Scripture and the end to which it points.
The book is written after though. Now, this suggests that a common body of proof texts ab A great translation of a Christian classic.
Now, this suggests that a common body of proof texts about Christ from the OT already existed by So it’s reasonable to assume that this was a common set of teachings established in the asian churches that Justin came from.
My guess is that these proof texts were established by about —perphaps reaching back to the preaching of Dialoge the apostle and John the Elder who lived until the 90s. So what you are getting is partly the apostolic pattern of preaching from the Old Testament.
An awe inspiring biblical exposition. Sep 16, Jacob O’connor rated it really liked it. I’ve dialpgue been curious about the Jewish people. I think many Christians are. We wonder why Christianity is so unconvincing to them. Justin Martyr was a second century Christian, and one of the faith’s first apologists. Dialogue with Trypho recounts a conversation he had with a religious Jew. It might be our earliest non-biblical account of the conversations Christians had with Jews of that time.
Modern readers will recognize the seeds of many of the reasons believers offer to Jews for our fait I’ve always been curious about the Jewish people.
Modern readers will recognize the seeds of many of the reasons believers offer to Jews for our faith. I wish Trypho had more opportunity to respond. Martyr portrays him as too compliant. Some of Justin Martyr’s arguments are wuth.

Some are bizarre the 12 bells on the high priest’s robe predict the 12 apostles? I’d like to see how a more hard-headed Jew would answer Jun 16, Tyler Stewart diaolgue it it was amazing.
Great translation based on the best critical text of Justin’s Dialogue.
Footnotes are ddialogue bit sparse but still informative. Particular attention is given to OT citations and their conformity and non-conformity to extant LXX readings. This is the best English edition of the Dialogue with Trypho. Jan 27, Nick Jordan rated it really liked it. Good for thinking on: Dec 20, Tom rated it really liked it Shelves: One of the earliest apologetics for the Christian faith, Justin demonstrates a fluid and detailed knowledge of the OT, especially the Psalms.
He clearly demonstrates that Jesus was the Messiah as foretold by the OT and that the church was the continuation of God’s people. There is indication of overwrought symbolism and analogical hermaneutic, but dialoguee to point of distraction. Dec 09, Jonathan Ward rated it liked it.
Fascinating to hear the type of apologetics that were used back in the time of the trypbo.
A whole trypjo of allegorizing as though it was spiritualizing; but aside from that enjoyable to hear so many Scriptures quoted. I was repeatedly shocked by the abrasive and yet compassionate way in which Justin referred to the Jews in general and before him.
