"Analytic Christology" Project
Analytische Christologie: die Versuchungen Jesu und die Sündlosigkeit Gottes
According to Christian tradition, Jesus Christ is said to be "truly man and truly God". The Gospels and the Letter to the Hebrews, on the other hand, tell that Jesus "has been tempted in every way, just as we are". Here one needs to raise the question: Was Jesus able to give in to the temptations? Is it possible that Christ was inable to sin according to his divine nature, but able to sin according to his human nature? This question and other logical problems of the Christian teaching of Christ's nature(s) will be scrutinized in the "Analytic Christology - Divine Impeccability" research project led by Dr. Johannes Grössl (University of Siegen/Würzburg) and Prof. Dr. Klaus von Stosch (University of Paderborn)in cooperation with philosophers of religion, systematic and biblical theologians. The project is funded by the John Templeton Foundation as a cluster project of The Nature of God Project.
In 2017 and 2018, four workshops were organized as part of this project:
