Shelves: theology
Pannenberg's work is a "theology from below", examining the person of Jesus beginning with his identity as the man from Nazareth. For Pannenberg, everything hinges on the resurrection. He basically ends up with orthodox Christology, but he cautions against speaking of Jesus during his ministry in terms that most of us are comfortable using. Instead, in light of the resurrection we say things about Jesus in retrospect. This is a dense book as he often summarizes the early church, medieval ...more

Pannenberg has written a masterful Christology 'from below' in 'Jesus: God and Man'. As someone just beginning my journey into serious theological reading I found his German academic style of writing a bit dense at times, but overall it was well worth the effort. I'd highly recommend this book for anyone looking to get a feel for modern theology in general and Christology specifically.

Pannenberg struggles mightily to arrive at mostly orthodox positions on the reality of Jesus, his resurrection, his deity, and the Trinity.

The discussion of Chalcedon is particularly valuable since it explores in great depth the ...more

I am following the knowledge of Jesus' divinity to Jesus the man before God in this strictly reasoned and documented work. This path of the divinity of Christ and the man Jesus leads to the conclusion that the resurrection of Jesus has only metaphorical and symbolic meaning until the reality of the eschaton of the return of Jesus. In the meantime, my path is to love everybody.

Wolfhart Pannenberg, born in Stettin, Germany (now Szczecin, Poland), was a German Christian theologian. His emphasis on history as revelation, centred on the Resurrection of Christ, has proved important in stimulating debate in both Protestant and Catholic theology, as well as with non-Christian thinkers.
