Does Jesus Know Us--do We Know Him?

Front Cover
Ignatius Press, Jan 1, 1983 - Religion - 99 pages
1 Review
The two reflections that form this book do not claim to mediate in the conflict between naive piety and scientific exegesis. They arise from the conviction that only the Scriptures of the New Covenant, taken as witnesses of faith and in their entirety, can produce a tangible and credible portrait of Jesus Christ, whereas every critical attempt to approach him from a position other than that of the faith witnessed to in the Scriptures can only result in a pallid, distorted picture unworthy of belief (and hence devoid of interest). It is a fact: only the person who is convinced that Jesus knows him personally gains access to knowledge of him. And only the person who is confident of knowing him as he is, can know that he is also known by him.
