Concluding Remarks

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study of traditional and analytic Christology. It justifies the use of the intellect to analyse the holy mystery and suggests that the refusal to use the tools of the intellect is to invite the unbeliever to derive the Christian faith. The chapter also suggests that refusal to analyse is comparable to agreeing to revise the traditional Christological beliefs.

Keywords: Christology; holy mystery; Christian faith; intellect; religious criticism
