God became flesh in Jesus 2. The Incarnation is the word of God ii. Theology is the passion(life, death, resurrection of Jesus) for his kingdom on Earth and for eternal life in God iii. Pain over God’s absence and over his hidden face iv. Mathein-pathein: to know God means to suffer God( we change when we know God) v. Christian theology is a response to God’s joy. We have believed and known, we perceive and understand, we understand and are assured b. 6 Points of Christian Theology i. Theology only exists under the premise of the Incarnation, the becoming human of the Word of God.(Logos tou Theau) ii. Theology gauges the spaces in the life, death, resurrection, and the future of Christ (Passion), and in doing so, it is the Trinitarian theology. iii. Christian theology is biblical theology. 1. Duality of the Old and New testament 2. All traditions are historically aligned toward the future of God’s kingdom. iv. Christian theology is ecclesial (church) theology and more than that. 1. Theology is the function of the Church v. Natural theology (creation) is a task for Christian theology. vi. Christian theology acquires its distinct profile in dialogue.
