dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to examine the significance of the historical Jesus in contemporary Christologies. Since the Enlightenment the quest of the 'historical Jesus' has influenced the shape of Christology not only in Europe but also in the Third World. We deal with the Christologies which have been formed in different backgrounds so that the roles of the historical Jesus in the Christologies of different cultures could be clear and comparable.en
dc.description.abstractChapter I concentrates on Bultmann's Christology; firstly it approaches the figure of the historical Jesus reconstructed by authentic sayings based on form criticism, secondly it seeks to grasp the exact meaning of the kerygma of the death and resurrection of Christ based on the demythologizing programme. It compares the content of the message of the historical Jesus and that of the post-Easter Church, and examines whether there is any real continuity between the two.en
dc.description.abstractany real continuity between the two. Chapter II is confined to examining how Kasemann, Fuchs and Ebeling have developed these issues which have been left unexplained in Bultmann; e.g. for Kasemann we look at how much and in what manner Paul and John were interested in the historical Jesus, and for Fuchs and Ebeling at the faith of Jesus and its meaning in the primitive Church. Focus is given solely to the relationship between the history of Jesus and the Christ of faith. In Chapter I and II, the guiding principle is to see whether there is a contact point between history and faith.en
dc.description.abstractChapter III deals with the Christologies of Boff and Sobrino in Latin America. Through the figure of the historical Jesus in their Christologies, the perspective of liberation Christology and the role of the historical Jesus in society are examined. It tries to understand how a radical image of Jesus in socio¬ political dimension can be compatible with traditional dogma. Therefore, the concern is primarily on the relationship between the present-historical liberation of Jesus and the future salvation of God.en
dc.description.abstractChapter IV deals with minjung Christology which has been formed in Asian culture. In Asia peoples have had their own messianic figures in historical and religious traditions, while Christianity there has had a relatively short history. Particular attention will be paid to the relationship between the Jesus-event and other messianic movements in traditional religions and in their history.en
dc.description.abstractChapter V examines different perspectives, Christological structures, and hermeneutics. In the pluralistic world, we attempt to understand the 'uniqueness' of the historical Jesus and the Christian faith in a new way. We attempt to encounter the uniqueness of Christian faith from the historical Jesus.en
