The Raised Christ: Appearance and Presence

Show Summary Details

Preview

Faith is understood as knowledge, and knowledge in general should logically come before trust. One must first know something of the person in whom one trusts, thus faith in God in the sense of knowledge is logically prior to faith as trust. Faith is not a blind leap in the dark but rather a rational and justified commitment of trust in one whom is deemed to be trustworthy. This chapter delves into the issues posed by the concept of the raised Christ. The discussion revolves around how the raised Christ makes His presence felt and known, and how humans acknowledge and claim a knowledge of Him.
