From Divinity to Infinity: A Future for Faith in the New Millennium
Fall 1999; Once and Future Jesus Conference
In looking at a future for faith, we may be working with the wrong ideas of God and the God-human relation. All research operates with tacit presuppositions, many of them philosophical and, in the case of historical Jesus research, theological. One of our jobs is to reveal and critically evaluate such presuppositions, along with the paradigm they help to shape. This presentation probes a possible “Copernican Turn” or paradigm shift in our understanding of God, revelation, and human being, and discusses how Jesus’ message of the kingdom might look within that new paradigm.
