Origen, "the most prolific author of the first three Christian centuries," teaches us "that in the prayerful reading of Scripture and in a coherent way of life, the Church is renewed and rejuvenated."
Origen emphasized the three-fold reading of Sacred Scripture according to the literal, moral and spiritual senses.
"This would be interesting to show," Said Pope Benedict XVI. "I tried somewhat, in my book Jesus of Nazareth, to show the multiple dimensions of the Word in today's world, of sacred Scripture, that must first of all be respected in the historical sense. But this sense brings us toward Christ, in the light of the Holy Spirit, and shows us the way, how to love."
