Hi All,


How has the Orthodox church understood John 6:37 throughout the centuries?

"All that the Father gives me will come to Me..."

Are there any patristic references which can help explain the identity of those 'given' to the Son?.

Is every believer/Orthodox 'given' to the Son?

Thanks
Sacha

St John Chrysostom homily 45 on the gospel of John.

 

You can find it on new advent (scroll down to 6.37):
