I must say that you tend to keep me perpetually confused! You say that “a narrative theology probably has to accept the legitamcy of the conclusion reached by the Counsils that Jesus is God, etc……”
But at the same time you seem to be dead set on an interpretation of Scripture that says something quite the opposite!
You may not know exactly where this work in progres is going to end up, commenting that it is quite possible that it will end up in the same place. But the trajectory you are on now and have been on since I started reading here seem to be taking you to a differennt place completely, a place of declaring Him “not God.”
