Christological points

"Walk in the man to arrive at the God." Through humanity to divinity. Through our own humanity to the divinity.

Jesus, the Face of the Father. Our own vocation to be the Face of the Father. Epiphany.

Not just Christology, but Christology as Theology: Christ as the Way to the Father, Epiphany.

Challenges from the religions

The challenge from Hinduism: can the Absolute enter space, time, language (the world mediated by meaning)?

The challenge from Judaism and Islam: can God be beyond our reason? (the challenge of rationalism - allowing God to be truly God, to be beyond the normal human reach of intellect)
