The Incarnation

Gordon D. Fee

Oxford University Press

Aletti provides complementary studies on St Paul. Fee offers an exegetical/historical re‐examination of Paul's Christology on the question of Christ's incarnation (and pre‐existence) over against those who either reject or offer a diminished view of these ideas in the apostle's letters. Fee examines four groups of Pauline passages: those that explicitly presuppose the pre‐existence of Christ as the mediator of creation; texts that speak of his ‘impoverishment’ in becoming human; texts that speak of God's sending his Son into the world so as to redeem it; and several passages that emphasize Christ's humanity in a way that seems to presuppose an incarnational Christology. Since Wisdom Christology plays a major role in most versions of Pauline Christology—in support of both traditional and reductive views—a section of this chapter offers a critique of this wisdom analysis.
