“Christianity is Christ!” » In no other religion is there a concentration like that which takes place, for his disciples, in the figure of Jesus. As a result, adherence to the “doctrine of Christ” is all-determining for faith and life. After a review of biblical and historical data, we construct the doctrine of “the two natures of the one Son”; of “the two states of the Mediator”; and finally of the “three offices of Christ”. An afterword discusses the evolution of Christology over recent decades.

The work, which draws largely on the work of biblical scholars, dialogues – polemically, at times – with influential theologians, ancient and contemporary. It deals with delicate questions, notably these: does the Old Testament itself predict the events of the life of Jesus or does it rather provide the patterns which made it possible to interpret them? Could Jesus, tempted, succumb? Did he himself know who he was? What is his relationship between his kingship and his priesthood?

“The author provides any studious reader with ample food for thought and many opportunities for personal research. Anyone who is more in line with the Calvinist lineage and the exegetical tendency represented by Cullmann, Pannenberg among others, will find themselves at ease and will find here many opportunities to strengthen their, let us say, “traditional” convictions. » (Jacques Rigaud, CPED Bulletin, January 1987).

The Doctrine of Christ brings together the Christology course given by Henri Blocher at the Free Faculty of Evangelical Theology. This volume is the second in the Didaskalia Collection , whose vocation is to publish the courses taught at the Faculty.
