Here are some questions one might ponder about Christology. If one believes that God is omnipresent, then in what sense if any could God be present in Jesus to a greater extent than elsewhere? If one believes Jesus was fully human, then how could he not have a complete human psyche arising from the function of his brain? The latter point, although not couched in the language of modern neuroscience, nevertheless reflects the conviction of those who defined Christian orthodoxy that Jesus had a human soul. But I can’t remember the last time I heard someone mention Jesus’ brain, and yet I doubt there is anyone reading this who would deny that he had one, although some (modern day Apollinarians), if pressed, might be hard put to explain what it was for).I know this blog is read by many Christians who embrace the findings of modern science, as well as some who do not. It is also read by some who embrace the findings of modern science but are not Christians. I wonder how people of various viewpoints regard Jesus, in relation to the Biblical evidence, historical considerations, classic orthodoxy, modern questions and the natural sciences.
