02 - Monteiro Lancy S.I. - Jesus Christ: Manmade God or God Made Man?

New

Monteiro Lancy S.I. 

Jesus Christ: Manmade God or God Made Man ?

ABSTRACT

Beginning with their association with Jesus of Nazareth, although in a rudimentary
form, the disciples’ faith has always been that he was ‘God who became man’. After their experience of Jesus’ resurrection, the same faith takes clearer expression and explication. In recent times, however, with the dawn and significance of historicalcritical method in ‘Jesus Research’ coupled with a greater awareness of the presence of
world religions, there have been attempts by theologians to negate this faith and to see it purely as human creation. Simply said, the attempts view Jesus as ‘Manmade God’ and not as ‘God becoming Man’. This essay, on the one hand, presents the arguments of John Hick that support the former, and on the other, viewpoints that uphold the latter.
