Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the reasons for and the significance and function of the human reason in preaching. The use of human reason in the apostolic preaching has as its first important function the identification of the Lord who is present in the testimony of his witness. The use of the human reason in the apostolic preaching has as its second important function the identification of the hearer, confronted with the testimony and what he recognizes to be the presence of Christ, as being what he is in his encounter with Christ. L sees Paul's use of human reason within his preaching as more than a refinement whose use could be left to his own judgment; rather the employment of human reason here is an effort which is demanded by the nature of that which the preaching serves, the identification of Christ and the hearer.
