The conventional Christian belief in Jesus' divinity is well founded because, as a perfect human being, Jesus is totally one with God. And so it was natural that they should express this lordship in the most exalted terms which their culture offered” (174). The Psalter speaks of the vinegar and gall (Matthew 27:34 from Psalm 68:22), the dividing of Jesus’ garments (Matthew 27:35 and John 19:24, citing Psalm 21:19), the distance of his friends (Mark 15:40 from Psalm 37:12), and the blasphemies of his enemies (Matthew 27:39–44, citing Psalms 21:8f; 108:25).

This is similar to the Mormon teaching, which is that the Father and Jesus have human bodies (though they have not always had bodies), but that the Holy Ghost is a spirit without a physical body. A lone prophetic voice protesting against the Hegelian synthesis and its outflow in theology came from Kierkegaard, again someone whose impact is far larger now than it was then. German theologian, Karl Rahner, wrote an essay entitled: Chalcedon: End or Beginning? [ Karl Rahner, Chalcedon: End or Beginning? redacted as Current Problems in Christology, Theological Investigations 1 (New York: Crossroad, 1982), 149-200. ] He spoke of the sorry and stagnant state of christology which seemed to be so opposed to new ways of expressing the reality of Jesus and his significance for our world today.

Christus Victor, the predominant image of the early church, existed in two forms, each of which involved the three elements of God, the devil or Satan, and sinful humankind. That the second passage above excludes an angel Christology, whereby I mean a Christology which views Christ as one of the created angels, seems fairly obvious. A few contemporary Roman Catholic theologians, such as Edward Schillebeeckx (1914– ) and Walter Kasper (1933– ) have chosen to begin their christological inquiry “from below” rather than “from above”; they start with the fully human Jesus and then go on to discover and confess the saving presence of God in him. more

They already know He exists; they are called on to agree and submit. Jesus said to them "Unbind him, and let him go." Gal 4:4; Rom 8:38; 1 Tim 3:16; Jn 3:16ff.). “Kenosis”, Incarnation, death, and glorious Resurrection of Jesus Christ on the Cross, as steps on the way from the Father, all of which show the soteriological and salvific meaning of the event of Jesus Christ (cf. insup.

We will better understand why God chose to limit the exercise of His deity when we understand His role as High Priest of the New Covenant. Koester, Ancient Christian Gospels [Philadelphia: Trinity Press, 1990]125-26; and see H. And finally, there are not "corulers" who "share" the throne of the universe--there is only one King of kings and Lord of lords. John Knox, The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women (1558). (135K). "To promote a woman to bear rule, superiority, dominion, or empire above any realm, nation, or city, is repugnant to nature; contumely to God, a thing most contrary to his revealed will and approved ordinance; and finally, it is the subversion of good order, of all equity and justice."

Dynamic monarchianism stated that Jesus was an ordinary man, in whom had been placed a divine power by god (dynamis is Greek for 'power'). He was to You (the Father) both victor and victim, and victor because victim. Great importance attaches to the logos-doctrine of St. The more we do, the stronger we will grow spiritually. 10. Thus, the authors may have used some hyperbole (exaggeration) to emphasize the point. [Jesus also used hyperbole for emphasis ( Matthew 7:3-5, Mark 10:25 ).] If these verses really mean that a person who has fallen away has no chance to repent, that would seem to contradict many other New Testament teachings about God's mercy and constant willingness to forgive.

But in the same context (vv. 22 and 24) that same glory has already "been given" (past tense) to disciples not yet born at the time when Jesus spoke. See John McGuckin (2004), Saint Cyril of Alexandria and the Christological Controversy, ISBN 0-88141-259-7 p. 140. Such a timeless God cannot be a sympathetic high priest interceding for humans. "God is love (1 John 3:8-17) because God is a relational Trinity, for each divine Person participates in an eternal, divine, internal history of reciprocal love, and hence in a temporal way.

For people in such situations of an unjust status quo, the idea of "being like Jesus" as modeled by satisfaction atonement means to submit passively and to endure that systemic injustice. Unfallen man was to cultivate the world unaffected by sin for this end. A few things come up for mention: Does Acts 2.36 and Rom. 1.3-4 teach that Jesus only became the Son at his resurrection? The apostle says: Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by giving heed to … Continue reading → Dr.

Consequently it cannot be said that we should not seek understanding to this matter because it is not specifically addressed in the Scriptures. The impeccability of Christ gives even more optimism to the believer’s view of victory in Christ. 1. Rather than the death of Jesus, what sinners need, what the reign of God needs is the resurrection of Jesus. This is loving our neighbor as ourselves, if he needs help, help him, and if he wants salvation and it is necessary to spill his blood on the earth in order that he may be saved, spill it." (Journal of Discourses, vol. 4, p. 220). [Many were killed under what is called the "Blood Atonement Doctrine" Leaving Mormonism was one of the sins that the blood of Jesus could not atone for, and a person's own blood must be shed by Mormon priests as an atonement for sin.] "I intend to meet them on their own grounds. ... and if any miserable scoundrel comes here, cut their throats." [And they obeyed; a wagon train of innocent men, women, and children were massacred at Mountain Meadows under the orders of Brigham Young.

But the Bible is clear: Christians are not under the curse of the Law, nor under it as a means of salvation (Rom.6:14-15). In Zechariah 5 there is a remarkable prophecy concerning the Babylon of the future. Others had earlier affirmed a kenosis by which Christ temporarily emptied himself of the use of divine attributes, suspending their employment during the time of his humiliation. Collegeville, MN: The Liturgical Press, 2001.
