Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the study of the New Testament (N.T.), of Christian origins, in a world which fights for its future and wrestles with the problem of the coexistence of nations and individuals, where the tensions are daily intensified. It discusses that many of the great questions hotly debated among are, in the compass of this world, nothing more than a storm in a teacup or even less. In the study of N.T. Christology one must distinguish better than has been done so far between images and titles; between names taken from "outside" and those which were thought appropriate in connexion with the special "case" of Jesus. The so-called "Testimonies" in use among the early Christians are largely invention post eventum, but have in their turn influenced later thinking.

Keywords: Christology; Jesus; Messiah; New Testament (N.T.)
