From him, when he willed it, the Word was born, his Son. � And the latter, since he was born of the Father is always in the Father. Because the dogmatic pronouncements of Nicaea and Chalcedon had set the parameters of orthodoxy and heresy for Christology in the West, the contributions of medieval theologians essentially amounted to a series of footnotes, amplifications, and minor deviations from the classical affirmations.

If, in the past, it has been the European voice that has been loudest, the time is upon us when the experiences and voices of other Australians need to be heard. Philosophical Hellenistic Judaism had conceived of the Logos as the personified agent of the divine being, the agent of creation, revelation, and redemptive action. FAITH - A belief in or confident attitude toward God, involving commitment to His will for one's life. [Greek pistis (PIS tis) - trust, firm conviction, obedience, commitment] GRACE - Favor or kindness shown without regard to the worth or merit of the one who receives it and in spite of what that same person deserves.

The creed adopted by the council described Christ as "God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance (homoousios) with the Father." 4 Nicea did not end the controversy, however. Moltmann favours "fortuitous" incarnation primarily because he feels that to speak of an incarnation of "necessity" is to do an injustice to the life of Christ. After the Middle Ages systematic approaches to Christology were developed.

This book, after having been out of print for years, was republished by Andrews University Press in 2003 as an annotated edition. In Jerusalem the vast majority of those accepting Jesus as the Messiah were observant Jews. 34 Peter was as well, but unlike James he had traveled to Antioch and realized that something had to be done with mixed communities. By far the most common title is Ho uHióß toü hanqr’wpou but there are problems with regarding this title as the primary christological material of the gospel.

It was a loving act of God designed to get the attention of sinners, and reveal the love of God for sinners while they were yet sinners. Similarly, for Christ to be able to redeem man, He must become the Second Adam that Paul writes of in Romans, the man who lives the perfect life before God to redeem humanity. The vital correlation between exegesis and praxis in patristic thought must be taken into consideration in any evaluation of christological positions.

Beginning with 1:23, Matthew shows a clear interest in identifying Jesus as "God with us" and in later developing the Emmanuel characterization of Jesus at key points throughout the rest of his Gospel. [61] The name Emmanuel does not appear elsewhere in the New Testament, but Matthew builds on it in Matthew 28:20 ("I am with you always, even unto the end of the world") to indicate Jesus will be with the faithful to the end of the age. [61] [62] According to Ulrich Luz, the Emmanuel motif brackets the entire Gospel of Matthew between 1:23 and 28:20, appearing explicitly and implicitly in several other passages. [63] The accounts of the crucifixion and subsequent resurrection of Jesus provides a rich background for Christological analysis, from the canonical Gospels to the Pauline Epistles. [64] A central element in the Christology presented in the Acts of the Apostles is the affirmation of the belief that the death of Jesus by crucifixion happened "with the foreknowledge of God, according to a definite plan". [65] In this view, as in Acts 2:23, the cross is not viewed as a scandal, for the crucifixion of Jesus "at the hands of the lawless" is viewed as the fulfilment of the plan of God. [65] [66] Paul's Christology has a specific focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus.

If the coming Antichrist were to be a Gentile, the Lord would have employed the word "heteros"; the fact that He used "allos"; shows that he will be a Jew. (6) The very name "Antichrist" argues strongly his Jewish nationality. In Colossians 1:16-17, Paul declares that by Christ "all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. Thus Paul writes in Romans of a Jesus, who was put to death for ourtrespasses and raised for our justification.

If Peter realizes at this point that he has been mistaken, why has Mark not placed him in the crowd before Pilate, one lonely voice that does not demand Jesus’ crucifixion? For what I say to you is the truth: Until heaven and earth pass away, not one iota or one serif will pass away from the Law – until everything has come to pass (i.e., the shadows of the Law fulfilled on the cross).
