For many of us, the whole concept of Christology is as mystifying as a foreign language, yet Christians down the ages have fought to defend the person and work of Christ—seeing him and what he did quite rightly as a vital element of how we are saved. It seems to me that this is the deepest Christological truth about Jesus. We study the historical setting of Scripture (human author, original readers, date, geography, manners and customs, archeology, etc), as well as the normal meaning of the language (its lexical meaning, grammar, syntax, context, etc). 5.

Although He submits to the Father within the Godhead, as does the Holy Spirit, He is not less than God. But that does not mean that the Early Church was a group of fundamentalists! Just as much must they be mindful of the teachings of saints and doctors. Christ has existed forever (John 1:1-2, Philippians 2:5-11, Heb. 1:1-3). The two natures were not mingled or confused, nor was there a third hybrid produced. In The Doctrine of the Trinity Sir Anthony Buzzard and Charles Hunting write: "Responsible historians, both secular and religious, agree that the Jews of Jesus' time held firmly to a faith in a unipersonal God.

There is debate over whether Marcion truncated Luke and Paul or whether later orthodox scribes may have expanded them in some cases. At various times Christ Himself gave partial support to Satan's claim of ownership. "In this third temptation Satan quizzes Jesus on the best means of obtaining His objective. Thus, the German Lutheran theologian Gottfried Thomasius introduced the notion that in the incarnation, the incarnate Word relinquished the “relational” divine attributes (omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence) while retaining the immanent divine attributes (power, truth, holiness, love).

I've been studying a lot on Christology and I can't seem to find the difference in the two anywhere on the net. This is why we want to expose the Watchtower claim that Trinity was borrowed from the pagans, as dishonest and false! The crucial problem for Christology is to specify how Jesus can be of normative significance for all people now and everywhere. Luke's Christology is best summarized by the acclamation of the people in their response to Jesus' work: "A great prophet has appeared among us," they said. "God has come to help his people" (Lk 7:16).

This was God's creative act, initiating His new creation and providing the model of Christian Sonship for us all. All of the excerpts above are so very clearly polytheistic, including that last paragraph where they compare their gods to different people who share the same cultural understanding. They are as Jesus is and live in the kingdom of God. You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all, the word which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.

The church was, in many ways, reflecting the power-play that was occurring in the Roman empire, a power-play that acted out the rivalries between East and West and eventually led to Marcion's unconstitutional seizure of the emperor's throne. Jesus did not take advantage of His powers because His human will was completely submitted to the will of God, so that Jesus always did those things that pleased His Father (John 8:29). He has grace for the guilty, mercy for the miserable, kindness for the helpless.

The Secular Ideologies of India and the Secular Meaning of Christ. In the Council of Constantinople in 381 it was affirmed that the Holy Spirit was of the same essence, oJmoousio", as the Father and the Son. Nothing in His ministry was done through the arm of flesh. The theme of divine suffering begins to open up from the dreadful experiences of the trenches, notably through the poetry of the army chaplain Woodbine Willy, G. This will allow me, in the second section, to define the conditions and methods generally used in African christologies.
