Christology – XTIANTHE 200 Notes January 23, 2008 Section 2, part 1:  YHWH Revealing the nameless name o fGod Jesus Christ is a)  the one who reveals b) the one who reconciles The people of Israel whose existence is revelatory & whose existence is reconciling.  Organic.  Jesus rests in this.  Jesus is not a disembodied idea.  Wed is a)  Friday is b) Through Lessig…. The problem of Christ being made the ground of our cultural reality.  Christ being conceived as an  abstract idea that must then be dropped into some cultural context, to be owned and to justify that  context. The problem of contextualized responses to this problem.  These responses often harbor the idea  of Christ being used as an abstract idea as well. Second:  step beyond section 1 …. Here make our entry into our investigation of jesus as the  Messiah – the Christological person that is revealed in the soteriological work.    Later, the  soterilogical work in the Christological person. The one is reveals.  Friday, the one who reconciles.  He’s not saying reconciliation, he’s not  saying redemption.  That is, he IS the redemption, he IS the revelelation. Last pieces of section 1 The scandal of the particularity of Jesus.  The axis of redemption runs straight through who Jesus  is.  Lessig couldn’t see the universal level.  Not a narrow and particular… (?) The contextualization problem.  He took the message to be outdated to the modern world. How can the cultivated Europeans enter into the archaic figure and message of the enlightened  and rational late 18 th  century….  While he did it in an effort to destroy Christianity, others who  followed him entered to try to save Christianity.  Kant and Schleiermacher, Hegel, Richal, von  Harmach --- all trying to “save Christianity”  (paradox there, eh???)

The ideological .. None of them gives us an image of Christ that TRANSFORMS identity, that draws us beyond  ourselves.  The Christ image is one that confirms us in our identity.  (That the problem.)  The  Christisbild is the way, one way or antoehr, just like me, just like us.  The religious imprimateur of  who we are.  We see this as one example…   Schleiermacher’s concept of “God consciousness” wsa perfect and thus ideal in Jesus.  The  significance of Jesus is that out of his quality of being an ideal, he communicates his God  consciousness to others.  This is to say, Jesus has the quality of being able to invoke the God  consciousness in a community of others.  Schleiermacher is not an individualist.  He has the  quality of being able to invoke whtat is indeal in him in a community of others as well.  The church

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
