Pannenberg’s Eschatological Christology

For Pannenberg, the resurrection of Jesus is the cornerstone of Christology, without which all Christological claims would crumble into dust. Starting from this basis, Pannenberg constructs a Christology that proceeds methodologically “from below” that succeeds in becoming a “high” Christology in terms of its theological content.

The paper begins by exploring the main facets of Pannenberg’s methodological bases: a historical approach to theology, and the central importance of the future hope for the arrival of the kingdom of God. The latter of these requires a survey of Pannenberg’s eschatology itself in order to proceed. In light of this methodological background, Pannenberg’s Christology itself is explored. Finally, critical engagements with the material are offered.
