Toward a Christology of Christ the High Priest

Front Cover
Gregorian Biblical BookShop, 2006 - 403 pages
This study proposes to connect the two: Jesus and priest. Salvation, redemption, and meditation are constant themes running through Christology but there is often a hesitation to call Jesus a priest, as if the reference is a little too ancient, a bit too cultic, and perhaps even irrelevant for contemporary Christology. Whether it be for Clement of Rome or Augustine of Hippo or Luther in Wittenberg or perhaps even today for a critical observer in America, something of a reserve typology seems to occur: namely a clear examination of Christ as priest gets bogged down in the shadows of mortal. Priests, causing something of a stand-still or psychological road- block for a priestly Christology.
