The function of the Logos was to be both the Father�s agent in creating and ordering the universe, and to reveal the truth to men. (J. Early Buddhism remembered Shakyamuni Buddha not as a prophet from God but as a pathfinder who said, "I myself found the way. In the New Testament as well, since Jesus is the revealed person of the Trinity and the focal point of all scripture, one finds innumerable descriptions of Him which, even if they fall short of being a “name” or “title” in some precise sense of those words, are certainly worthy of inclusion in any comprehensive treatment (as, for example, where He is called in Hebrews 3:1 “the Apostle. .. of our faith”, in Hebrews 2:10 the “Captain of their salvation”, and in Hebrews 12:2 “the originator and completer of our faith”), not to mention the various self-descriptions our Lord uses for Himself in His address to the seven churches of Revelation alone: To the angel of the church in Ephesus, write: “This is what the One who has the mastery over the seven stars (i.e., churches) in His right hand says, the One who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands.” And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: “This is what the One who is the first and last says, He who died and came to life.” And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: “This is what the Son of God says, the One whose eyes are like a flame of fire and whose feet are like white-hot bronze.” And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: “This is what the One who is holy and true says, the One who has the key of David, the One who opens and no one will lock, who locks and no one opens.” And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: “This is what the Amen says, the reliable and truthful Witness, the origin of God's creation.

We cannot represent God by any object, picture, piece of art. Because there is a fair amount of repetition related to the above three themes, one is readily struck by the sheer weight of these themes in Paul’s writings in a way that has not been described before, at least not in quite the same way as Fee does.

Though the actions of the Trinity are indivisible, we insist that this does not confuse the distinctness of the persons. Actually the councils themselves could be so effective because they had the wisdom of saintly scholarship on which to draw for a deeper understanding of revelation, here of the Word of God become Man. The hymn of Phil. 2.6-11, therefore, is about the contrast of the two Adams: the first man and the last Adam. As such, it leads to conclusions like Jesus never claimed to be pre-existent Creator (he qualifies the Gospel of John as a later theological reflection, and not a historical tradition that goes back to Jesus himself).

When it is said God assumed human nature in the form of Jesus Christ, one is naturally inclined to wonder how Christ’s divinity can be understood in relation to his humanity. Because the second person of the Trinity had the same personal substance as the incarnated Jesus, they are identical persons. Its importance can be noted when K�semann's challenge was taken up by representatives of both Catholicism and Protestantism. 36 In the present emphasis on the historical quest for Jesus the liberal research into the life of Jesus of the 19th century is a lost cause.

When He saw them, He said to them "Go and show yourselves to the Priests." In short, even when we address the very heart of Jesus in terms of his divinity and resurrection, reason can still have important things to say. Christology, or the study of the person and work of Christ, represents the highest study to which we can aspire to. Yet despite his opposition to Chalcedon he always remained as tolerant and irenic as possible, being willing even to accept the phrase 'in two natures' as long as the union of Divinity and humanity in Christ was confessed.

The tendency has been to represent God as the only all-powerful ONE, who rules the world as a monarch. But the liberal quest bore the seeds of its own downfall, as shown by Weiss and Schweitzer. If God in his mercy had simply forgiven humans for their sin, God's moral order would have been repudiated.
