Chapter Summary

Witness is that element in preaching which makes the sufferings of Christ in the sense of blasphemy possible. The place of the representative sufferings of Christ is not his back, beaten because of his preaching, nor his hands, bound in the service of bearing witness, but his intellectual efforts suffering "contradiction" in his carrying out of preaching as witness. We have grown accustomed to thinking of the Christian's role as a witness primarily in categories of bodily suffering extending even to a martyr's death. Faith and the intellectual element, as reflected in Paul's method of preaching are together like two peas in a pod but no closer. Neither merges with the other at the expense of its own identity. The relation in which faith and the intellectual element stand to one another is not just one which of necessity arises from the presence of the risen Christ.
