Luke called the Antioch community ‘Christians’ (Acts. 11.26) presumably they were independent from the synagogues. Hick applies this model directly to the religious Ultimate, distinguishing between the Real as humanly experienced and the Real an sich. Their announcement of the gospel began on the festival of Shavuot (also known as the day of Pentecost), just days after Jesus left them and "ascended to the right hand" of his Father. We cannot seek farther, above or� beneath the man Jesus, his being God.

We might say there underlying meaning, or 'deeper' meaning in common English. But the Christian tradition is much richer than this. As defined above, an example would be baptism in water, representing (and conveying) the grace of the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Forgiveness of Sins, and membership into the Church. Story-shaped Christology: the role of narrative in identifying Jesus Christ. An anthropological Christology starts with the human person of Jesus and works from his life and ministry toward what it means for him to be divine; whereas, a cosmological Christology works in the opposite direction.

He goes on to ask: Since Jesus is “wisdom itself” (autosophia), “justice itself” (autodikaiosyne) and “truth itself” (autoasphaleia), is he not also autobasileia “the kingdom itself” (In Mt.

As the "prophet like unto Moses," Jesus has ascended on high and returned through the Spirit to equip the church for growth (Eph. 4:7-16). In this time period, the Christological views of various groups within the broader Christian community led to accusations of heresy, and, infrequently, subsequent religious persecution. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. (Colossians 1:13-17) Sometimes theologians make a distinction between a Theophany - an appearance of God, and a Christophany - an apearance of Christ in the Old Testament.

He went to prepare a place for believers (Jn. 14:2,3). Spirit or cosmic Mind, Geist, must undergird and inform everything, and indeed the world is the finite historical form of the infinite. He is identifying Jesus as the ‘Lord’ whom the Shema’ affirms to be one. Robert Powell's paint by numbers Jesus rises to speak his lines as if he has a secret ambition to join the cast of Days of Our Lives.

You can be sure that God is thinking many thoughts of love towards you. ( Ps. 139:17 ). If woman represents the higher human qualities of peace, purity, reconciliation and love, then these qualities are too good to keep at home. Jesus came to manifest God's universal love. He is Head of the Body of the Church and the reconciler of all things (cf. 1 Cor 8:6; Col l:15ff.; Jn 1:1—3, 17; Heb l:2ff.). In addition to specific scriptures and prophecies which taught about or foreshadowed the Messiah and His two advents (see section I.5.d immediately below), the coming of the Messiah and the sufferings of the Christ were also taught via what we call “typology”, that is, symbolic representations of the Person and the work of Jesus, occurring occasionally in the lives of special individuals (e.g, the kingship of David and of Solomon being symbolically applicable to the millennial reign of Christ; cf.

This is done by the spiritual gifts which God gives to all Christians (I Cor. 12, Rom. 12). Rather than become enmeshed in ‘how?’ questions – for example, how could divine and human natures be united in one person? – Bonhoeffer stresses the need to ask personal questions: about Christ’s person and about the enquirer. It is grounded in solid research yet very accessible. —Douglas J. Rather than allow our knowledge to be dictated by philosophers and theologians, scientists should be the ones to give us knowledge.

For fallen people who seek salvation, perhaps the most important questions among the many they must resolve concern Christology. The bond of a non-consummated marriage between Christians may be dissolved in two cases: when one of the parties concerned makes the solemn profession of religious vows, or when the pope, for weighty reasons, dissolves such a marriage.
