Nick Norelli mentioned my name in connection with a discussion of Richard Bauckham’s use of the phrase “divine identity” in relation to early Christology. As I have said before, I do think that Bauckham’s terminology is unhelpfully vague, and until he defines it more clearly it cannot even be assessed in terms of its applicability to the New Testament sources. Is it identity of the sort a family has, including those adopted into it? Is it identity of the sort a single individual has? Is it something else?
What do you understand Bauckham to mean by the term, and if you find it particularly helpful or unhelpful, perhaps you could mention why in a comment?
