Tradition and Imagination

Explores how a kenotic understanding of the incarnation might be used to bolster the general argument. If even in the case of christology, there was only a gradual disclosure of who Jesus was, particularly in the light of the resurrection, it would seem reasonable to expect a similar pattern of development elsewhere. In terms of Jesus’ perfection, a number of apparent limitations on his imagination are explored, including his attitude to the law, his belief in an imminent eschatology and the cry of dereliction, and a distinction drawn between perfection and sinlessness.

Keywords:   christology, cry of dereliction, eschatology, imagination, incarnation, kenosis, law, resurrection, sinlessness
