  Ephrem the Syrian Summary
Ephrem was born around the year 306 in the city of Nisibis (the modern Turkish town of Nusaybin, on the border with Syria).
Ephrem was baptized as a youth, and almost certainly became a son of the covenant, an unusual form of Syrian proto-monasticism.
One of the earlier 'modifications' is the statement that Ephrem's father was a pagan priest of Abnil or Abizal.

 KIM: Signs of Ephrem's Exegetical Techniques in his Homily on Our Lord

Ephrem's exaltation of humility in the face of bold questioning probably is generated by 2Cor 10-13 and Paul's words that "power is made perfect in weakness" (2Cor 12:9).

 RUSSELL: The Image of the Infant Jesus in Ephrem the Syrian
Ephrem focuses on the contrast between humanity and divinity, between the extreme helplessness of the new-born human and the limitless power of the fully Divine Son of God, in order to impress that duality of natures in Christ on the mind of his listener.
Ephrem is not delighting in apparent absurdities for their own sakes, but is providing, instead, a building block for the final and most important aspect of his use of this image.
Ephrem imagines the Son entering into the created world as a person in it, while Theodore's idea seems to be that the Son has drawn close enough to creation to associate Himself with it, but not in a manner that commits Him to it holistically, beyond what He desires at any moment.

Ephrem also teaches that the sources of spiritual life are in the sacraments, in the observance of the Evangelical precepts, and in the manifold exercises of piety which the liturgy supplies and the authority of the Church proposes.
