A new approach to Christology--formed through the eyes of the disciples of Jesus. Traditional christologies generally turn to the historical Jesus or to the pronouncements of church councils. This book approaches Christology from the perspective of the disciples of Jesus. How did they understand Jesus, and shape their lives in answer to his teachings? What difference did Jesus make for them? In this way, Christology becomes for us a practical discipline rather than a theoretical one: this is how the disciples followed and remembered Jesus. The goal throughout is to help readers understand how we can, using Tilley's words, "be faithful to our old creeds in this new world."
Closely argued and finely nuanced, The Disciples' Jesus explores texts from Mark 8: 27-30 (the questioning of Peter at Caesarea Philippi); John 11: 17-27 (the encounter of Jesus with Mary and Martha at Bethany); Philippians 1: 6-11 (the kenosis hymn); and Luke 7: 18-23 and Matthew 11: 2-6 (the encounter between Jesus and the disciples of John the Baptist). In conversation with a large number of contemporary theologians, Tilley explores Christian discipleship????????????????????????????????????????????????wh it meant to the early followers of Jesus and what it means to believers today.
