Incarnation and ‘Inner Life’

Show Summary Details

This chapter argues in defence of traditional Christology against criticism that Incarnation results in many unsolvable problems. It explains that the main issue concerning Incarnation is not Jesus Christ’s self-consciousness but His will. He can have two wills in Him, one divine and one human. The link here is that it is the same subject who wills both.

Keywords: Christology; Incarnation; Jesus Christ; self-consciousness; will; Divine Word; religious criticism
