‘Who do you say that I am?’ – a question that dominated the early Church’s doctrinal controversies – the more fundamental question was: ‘What has God done – in Christ?’ It was the answers they gave to this question that not only enabled them to answer the question about Jesus’ identity, but led to a new understanding of God as the ‘Father of our Lord Jesus Christ’ (2 Cor 11:31). From: The Nature of New Testament Theology, p.76, by Morena Hooker. Key essay in an anthology by the same title, (2006). Eds. Christopher Rowland & Christopher Tuckett.
