123: The Meaning and Origin of Monogenes (John 1:14)

June 4, 2020

While John 1:14 has traditionally regarded Jesus as the "only-begotten" one, modern lexical experts are arguing that "unique" or "one of a kind" is a more accurate translation. This episode explores how the Prologue and the rest of the Gospel of John use this Greek adjective "monogenes" in regard to the human Jesus. In doing so, we focus on the meaning of the adjective and its origins within Jewish depictions of Lady Wisdom.
