Interview on Trinities.org on How Jesus Became God Part 2

This is the second part of my interview with Dale Tuggy, the host and co-executive producer of Trinities.org podcast.  The podcasts hosts debates, interviews, and historical and contemporary perspectives on issues related to Christian theology.  The interview was focused on How Jesus Became God, although in spots we go afield.   Some listeners have thought that this was one of the more interesting of the interviews I’ve done.  The interview took place on April 14th, 2014 via telephone.

    This is very complex, made so by the literary tension you mention in John’s Gospel. For example, in this interview you said that John thinks Jesus did pre-exist with God, and yet on page 246 of your book you say “…the Prologue is not saying that Jesus pre-existed, that he created the universe, that he became flesh. Instead it is saying that the Logos did all these things…The “in-fleshment”, or incarnation, of the Logos is who is Jesus Christ was.” Seems that John has a conflict. I agree.

    Having finished “How Jesus Became God” I have to ask if critical scholarship is the Second Coming?

    There was a historical Jesus, a Jewish apocalyptic preacher in Galilee, who was crucified by the Romans. Some of his followers waited anxiously for the apocalypse and the coming Kingdom of God. It never arrived and instead we got the church whose traditions exalted the Jewish preacher to the right hand of God and then to God himself. Now belief in Jesus as the pre-existent God is considered a foundational belief of Christianity which can not be questioned without placing yourself outside the Church.

    Critical scholarship though is now revealing a more historical Jesus despite arguing every point and every step of the way and Jesus is returning as the Jewish preacher from Galilee. So do you think it ironic that critical scholars including non-believers and atheists are participating in what could be called a religious movement though maybe a more accurate phrase would be a post-religious movement?
