The Questions of Christologists

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses some questions of Christologists about Christological evidence. It focuses on Schubert Ogden’s attempt to eliminate the empirical-historical Jesus Christ on the ground that it is the existential-historical Jesus who is the real subject of Christological assertions. The chapter suggests that Ogden’s attempt to eliminate the historical Jesus is both illogical in its starting point and incredible in its conclusion, and that Christological evidence need not be confined to the historical sources for Jesus’s life.

Keywords: Christology; Christological evidence; Schubert Ogden; Jesus Christ; religious criticism
