Languages of publication
The paper compares the two oldest interpretations of the Gospel pericope about the rich young man, the homily of Clement of Alexandria Quis dives salvetur? and part of Origen’s Commentary on Matthew. The first part of the paper presents three principles of biblical hermeneutics, which are common to both authors, and at the same time highlights the different approaches in practical work with the biblical text, based on the differences in literary genres. It notes that both authors consider a literal interpretation of the word of Jesus insufficient, and therefore pay great attention to the allegorical, respectively other possible interpretations. The second part of the paper proposes seven points of contact in the interpretation of individual verses, which establish the similarity of both texts but also illustrate the differences in approach by their authors.
