You are spot-on, Berry

The shoe-horning of the post-biblical construct back onto the biblical text is as flawed as looking for Muhammad in the Bible or identifying Jesus with the archangel Michael.  Same indirect, circularly inductive kind of argumentation strained to prove a presupposed doctrinal preferrence.  Since when does the way arguments “feel” have a bearing on an argument’s validity and soundness?

Have you read Murphy O’Connor, John Macquarrie, JAT Robinson and Schillebeeckx on their masterful treatment of Christological issues?  As soon as post-biblical shackles are removed, the original plan and purpose of God in Jesus and the upliftment his ministry brought about for the nation and later the Gentile are miraculously unlocked.

Be blessed,
