5 min on Christology using 4 splits that frame the debate.
This approach recognizes that Jesus was unique in human history in that:
- Jesus shows us something unique about God
- God was present with Jesus in a unique way that comprised Jesus’ identity and character.
It avoids the dangerous temptation to say that Jesus was not fully human, only appeared human, or was a different kind of human. It also allows us to embrace Jesus as a model for full-humanity (to the Nth degree) and openness to God’s calling in our own lives.
I would love to hear your questions, comments, and concerns.
