The Raised Christ as the Remembered Jesus

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the memory of Jesus Christ and the concept of the remembered Christ. In it, Jesus as the man who died on the cross is sketched and illustrated through the memory that is prevailing within the Christian Church, wherein His continuing and living presence is reiterated and strengthened. The chapter probes into the efforts of the Church to remember Christ in order to propagate and spread the recognition and identification of Jesus as a Spirit that remains present and alive, and as a raised Christ that exists and sits at the right hand of the Father.
