The Raised Christ: Glorified But Disappearing

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the resurrected and exalted Christ. The elusiveness of the Easter experience within the context of the risen and glorified Jesus is the core of the chapter. It seeks to address queries in the ‘presence of Christ’. The issues brought forth by the resurrection theology, wherein the notion of Christ's living presence is a chief bridge that fills the gap between the origins of Christianity and the continuing story of Christian life, is discussed and examined. To shed light on the experience of the glorified Christ, the chapter presents some thoughts of representative twentieth-century theologians, such as Édouard Le Roy, B.F. Westcott, Kirsopp Lake, and Edward Schillebeeckx.
