To “envision” Jesus.

To “envision” Jesus is about:

  • looking to the past (the cross and resurrection),
  • through the lens of the Christian historical metanarrative, in order to
  • better understand the present, and
  • see the present anticipation of Jesus’ second coming (in question…).

The discussion involves better understanding the cross and resurrection as the climactic events that shaped the present age: of heaven and earth, and of new creation.

Once the past is better understood we can then “pivot” to the present and the future, through fresh lens.

Note that the best-practices resources (academic) to “envision” Jesus are mostly on the subject of Biblical interpretation.

The tutoring harmonises St Paul’s experience of persecution, and his use of the phrase “the gospel”, and his use of the language of revelation, in the historical context.
