Succinct Christology

“The gospel … is always some form of the claim, ‘Jesus, the one who …, is risen from the dead,’ with the ellipse filled by whatever narrative identification is needed in a context. The doctrine of Trinity and the canonical Gospels given, a necessary form of the gospel is: ‘Jesus, the one who …, is one of the Trinity,’ with the ellipse filled from the Gospels. Proper ‘Christology’ would be hermeneutic of this form of the gospel.”

— Robert Jenson, Systematic Theology, I:134.
