The 16:25 I. Big Picture A shift of genres Confessions: formation of the self Accessible way Many people can relate too Anthanisus personality and journey to faith is orderly exposition to theological thoughts Meaning of God, Creation, etc. We can identify a distinct number of theological thoughts God and cosmology Trying to understand where creation comes from and what the structure of creation is Doctrine of salvation Loving God despite humans screwing everything up How does God to ensure that things turn out okay How does God solve the problem that humans created Context Ambiguity in the Bible & early church Widespread agreement and widespread disagreement about Jesus Agreement: Jesus Christ is supremely important What made Him unique: He had special and unique relationship with God such that He can redeem other human beings/restore broken relationship with God He wasnt located in the past but alive for early Christian community Source of joy and source of early Christians to relate to God and other Christians Disagreement: arises because questions about exact nature of Christs relationship with God Most important human being chosen by God/adopted by God so that God could carry out Gods saving plan OR was Jesus Christ God in the fuller sense Somebody who shares in the divine being All the properties of God Himself Reasons why questions arose was because of New Testament Colossians 1:15 = two viable interpretations Surely if somebody is image of God, surely they too is God Appropriately to say Jesus Christ is God OR image cannot mean same thing as God Firstborn means Jesus is fully human New Testament can support a variety of interpretations and precisely because of that, it was legitimate/understandable that early Christians disagreed about ultimate identity of Jesus Christ Arius and Arianism Arius person that Athanasius opposed Popular and gathered a lot of followers Arius/Arians believed two concerns To preserve Gods utter simplicity and utter transcendence Absolutely no distinctions in God God is simply One More One than the number one Utter transcendence: God is utterly other from the world/utterly distant/utterly different/inaccessible Creation begins with creation of the Son, Son is identifiable as Jesus Christ Because creation begins with the Son, the Son is not God but ultimately a creature If Jesus is a creature, Jesus Christ is not God There was a time when He was not = Arian slogan Athanasius and Nicea Jesus Christ defined in same way God the Father is defined Jesus is fully God Athanasiuss contrasts Arius to the fullest II. a narrative of creation & salvation Distinction & Unity: The Father and the Word/Son of God Distinction but not division in the One God Two names that should be distinguished but not merged into one Both pertain to One God but contains some type of distinction Distinction goes hand in hand in believing that God is one = God is unified but distinct between Father and Word Unity including distinction Word of God is derived from the Father but coequal with Father because He has all the qualities of the Father Father generates the Word of God, also called the Son of God Son is not a creature but rather, Father generates Son But not generating something that is inferior Coequal to God BIG CLAIM of this book The Word as Creator and Renewer Word of God is creator of anything that exists Word of God is agent of creation and organizes and structures everything that exists in time and space Creation comes into existence out of nothing Out of sheer power of God, and communicated through the Word, creation exists Word not is just created but also the renewer of creation Word creates and RECREATES Word brings into existence out of nothing, Through the Word of God, God creates and through the Word of God, God saves Puts things right when things go wrong God loves humans so much, humans bear the image of God If the Word of God could be named the Image of God, then humans can be called the image of the Image of God Sin and Death Humans violate the terms of the relationship they are given by God Human try to erase the image of God that they have been given Adultery, etc. Consequence: Humans were brought into existence out of nothing. When humans begin to sin, a process of de-creation begins Try to drip back towards nothing Try to embrace death Starts to disintegrate Slipping back towards nonexistence Puts God in dilemma: God doesnt create so that creatures slip into nonexistence but God creates so humans can have rich relationship with God Death starts to reign and God doesnt want that Not Gods fault that humans are sinning humans are responsible for sin preserving relationship or let humans get what they deserve (death) Divine intolerance: no more death! Gods love of humans is so intense that its absolutely unthinkable to let go of His project of creation God personally steps in -> incarnation The incarnation of the Word Word of God exists as a human being while remaining fully God in order to put universe right again Word of God adds to himself an individual human body and exists in the mode of human existence Does that mean that Word of God changes into human being and ceases to be Word of God Choosing to exist as human being adding to Himself, not a transmutation The salvation of humankind Consequence of God becoming human: humans can start to know; directed on God God is now comprehensible to human beings Incarnation of God; drip towards death is halted, movement towards life begins Reign of death is broken Christ is the locus of life and immortality Life radiates out from Christ and affects all humans Christ had to die in order that life may be given to all mankind The Crucifixion Death to be halted, Christ himself has to die But resurrection means that death is being replaced New life: resurrection and courage Resurrection is new birth of human race Humans do not need to fear death Because death will be overcome by life Life will come to ALL human beings; not selective to only Christians Entirety of human race III. things to think about How can there be distinction but One? Father and Son/God and Two persons? Dont Christians see God as Three persons? Athanansius doesnt deal with Holy Spirit Does he forget to think about Holy Spirit? Is his ___ incomplete? At the end of his life, Athanasius starts to talk about three persons But in the beginning of the book, Holy Spirit is pushed to the side Does Athanasius make it seem like Jesus was fully human? Jesus suffered and crucified But Athanasius seems to instrumentalize Christs humanity Colossians 1:15: He is the image of the invisible of God, the firstborn of creation.
