Chapter Summary

As Bob Becking states in his article on monotheistic forms of religion in the Old Testament, the question of how and to what ends doctrinal concepts of monotheism are founded on biblical texts deserves more attention and research. Patrick Chatelion Counet, studying early Jewish monotheism in relation to the divinity of Jesus as proclaimed in the texts of the New Testament, also comes to the conclusion that twentieth-century theological and exegetical assumptions about biblically-based monotheism are in need of revision. Another compelling proposal for revision of the study of early Christian monotheism is formulated by Celtic and Religious Studies scholar Jacqueline Borsje. German Romanticism, according to Bert Blans and Marcel Poorthuis, was not only marked by a well known romantic interest in "Greek gods," but also by a serious attempt to face polytheism as a genuine questioning of Christian belief.
