Inside the Life of Jesus

The Christian can accept Jesus as God’s revelation without denying those nonreligious pictures of him as a finite, conditioned individual, describable in terms of the same type of cause-and-effect relationships applicable to all men. For these external accounts only give the outer, externally perceivable events and do not penetrate to the other aspect of Jesus, his inner self. This aspect can only be known by another approach, by participating in the historical community emanating from Jesus’ personal impact upon his contemporaries. Hence the “two-aspect theory of history” is said to allow belief in revelation without any warfare between faith and reason.
