 The Theology of Jesus

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the role of Christ in the theology of the New Testament. It argues that Jesus is indeed present at the conference, but not in an obvious or obtrusive way. The teaching of Jesus in the four Gospels is the starting point and the goal of New Testament theology. The inclusion of Jesus in a New Testament theology will depend on what will be considered the meaning of ‘theology’ — whether it will be static formulations about God, a dynamic linked to the politics, history, and daily affairs of the nation in which Jesus was born.
