1Argument Summary Paper 2First Principles by Origen and The Doctrine of the Resurrectionby Gregory of Nyssa areresources originally published by the Christian authors to help expand scriptural understanding and interpretation. This material was written for fellow Christians and non-Christians alike. It includes subjects such as free-will, lifestyle, and the afterlife. However, their exposed beliefs were very different from what it is taught in the bible bringing up many disagreements and arguments within religion and regarding faith. Origen himself stated at the end of the first paragraph of chapter 6 that these subjects are being open not for definition, but for discussion. Through his interpretation, Origen expresses how all come from God and will return to God in the end, then they will be resurrected and will receive their bodies back, without reserves or conditions. This will happen at the end of the world and consummation, which is the time when all souls will be visited with the penalties due to their sins.
