Characters Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God

Jack Miles Ê 2 Summary Review  Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God 102 With the same passionate scholarship and analytical audacity he brought to the character of God Jack Miles now approaches the literary and theological enigma of Jesus In so doing he tells the story of a broken promiseGods ancient covenant with Israeland of its strange unlooked for fulfillment For having abandoned his chosen peop It s my good fortune to have spent about a year in India over the course of the last three years and I ve often hosted first time visitors Conversations invariably move to an overview of Hinduism a religion that is uite foreign to Westerners Almost without fail my guests have voiced the belief that Hinduism is all myth and not to be taken very seriously I ve taken to asking these folks what makes Hinduism a myth or fiction or literary construct than Christianity and to no surprise they ve failed to come up with an answer I m sure if any of these folks had been dyed in the wool Christians I would have heard something about the revealed word of God etc etc but they ve been open minded enough to ponder the uestions and the implications of judging another s belief system based on their ownWith both God a Biography and Christ A Crisis in the Life of God Jack Miles has opened the field of discourse by presenting the Primogenitor as a literary character rather than a factual being and Christ as the same regardless of his historical reality He has asked Christians to look at their God in much the same way we look at foreign Gods Was Krishna born on July 19 3228 BCE in Gokula India Will he return at the end of the current age to usher in a time of peacefulness Was Jesus born on December 25th 1 CE Will he return to judge the living and the dead To Hindu s Krishna walked talked made love performed miracles To Christians Christ did the same except perhaps made love How much credence we give to any story depends on our orientation but regardless of belief the stories themselves are wonderfulOne reason they re wonderful is they are rich in metaphor and it s the metaphor that Mr Miles explores to great effect Who can deny the beauty of an infant and the idea of an infant knowingly giving love Who can deny the power in the story of God admitting an error and sacrificing himself in an attempt at rectificationMr Miles s success is that he opens the metaphor and forces us to thinkAlthough I m not a huge fan of Mr Miles literary style in fact I find it a bit stilted what he has to say than adeuately compensates for the difficulty style presentsHighly Recommended

Jack Miles Ê 2 Summary

Jack Miles Ê 2 Summary Review  Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God 102 Le to an impending holocaust at the hands of their Roman conuerors God in the person of Jesus chooses to die with them in what is effectively an act of divine suicide On the basis of this shocking argument Miles compels us to reassess Christs entire life and teaching His proclivity for the powerless and disgraced His refusal to Miles serves up a stimulating literary analysis of the New Testament as a literary unity in contrast to textual and historical critical analysis This is a Christology but not a classical philosophical construct Rather Miles focuses on the biblical text to discover the personality of Jesus and the concept of Christ we find in the writings of his followers in the New Testament textsMiles builds on a historical perspective on the growing understanding of God through history that brings us to the time of Jesus referencing the biblical texts of the Tanakh Old Testament That full story is developed in Miles previous volume God A BiographyHere he investigates how this biblical portrayal of God with its radical declarations of the meaning of Jesus the Messiah created troubling uestions for the rationally and philosophically oriented worldview into which Christianity moved How can God be incarnateThe conflict starts in the disparity between the Jesus of the Gospels with whom his followers lived and the growing conviction among his followers that this Jesus was a personality beyond time Paul states for instance God was in Christ 2 Cor 519 What did this mean Simply put the basic uestion is How God could become human This is the core conundrim for both followers and distractors of the new faithVarious conflicting answers to these troubling uestions gradually arose out of the philosophical maelstrom of the Mediterranean world where Christian faith finally took deep root We are treated to a astute and competent display of the conceptual conflicts that develop the philosophical crisis the Miles refers toThe title of the volume indicates the focus of the study Miles examines the picture that we can actually perceive from the text itself reading the books that make up the library collection of the New Testament in seuenceCasual readers will be surprised to see how the actual picture in the text differ from a composite view that draws a single picture from the various glimpses of the various texts a process which tends to be guided by our preconceptions When Miles actually looks at what the text says the picture that unfolds refreshingly differs in some way from most of the received or normative viewsHe investigates how the term Christ is used as a reference or title to the living Jesus and again is used to refer to the eternal entity identified with the Word of God in John s gospel or the risen Jesus Some keen challenging insights arise on the meaning of the Incarnation in the composite story of the New Testament writers
