My Colloquium paper went well tonight, and the members appeared to agree with my major original contributions, which is always nice.
As it turns out, I was my worst critic, and I’ll admit, I’m still not happy with the paper. I feel this subsection of my chapter on 1 Cor has the potential to be something really good, and until I’ve chiselled that ideal out, everything else will look dull to me. For those who have asked to read a copy, I am sorry for not getting back to you – I’ve just been a been, well ... frankly, a lazy git.
My thesis concerns the present debate regarding Pauline divine-Christology.
But what is ‘divine-Christology’?
I like, at least as a provisional and working definition, that suggested by Bauckham: A divine-Christology places Christ, ‘on the divine side of the line which monotheism must draw between God and creatures’ (R. Bauckham, “The Worship of Jesus in Apocalyptic Christianity,” NTS 27 : 335).
How would you define ‘divine-Christology’?
