After asking Christ: Who are you? we cannot fail to ask him: Why did you come'. The two questions are so closely intertwined that the answer to the first anticipates the answer to the second. Even so, the answer to the second question needs to be clearly understood, with all the essential problems inherent in it. The delucidation of the solid foundation. We have searched the Scriptures for the key to the mystery of the person of the incarnate Son of God, and now we shall inquire into the nature of the work he accomplished in our midst. We shall start out by asking the reason for the Incarnation, and then seek to clarify the real meaning of the liberation Christ effectuated. Next, we shall go on to analyze the significance of the path Jesus followed to attain his goal, the path of the Passion. Finally, we shall study the salvific value of the glorification of Jesus, of his glorious state after death, to his Resurrection, his Ascension, and his sending of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost

People in India form images of Jesus Christ that link up with their own culture. Hindus have given Jesus a place among the teachers and gods of their own religion, seeing in his life something of the wisdom and mysticism that is so central to Hinduism. Christians in India also make use of the concepts provided by Hinduism when they wish to express the meaning of Christ.Thus, in any case, Jesus is—for Hindus and Christians—a guru, a teacher of wisdom who speaks with divine authority. But for many Hindu philosophers and Christian theologians there is much more that can be said about him within the Indian framework. He can be described as anavatara, a divine descent, or linked to the Brahman, the all-encompassing Reality. This study looks at both Hindu and Christian views of Christ, starting with that of the Hindu reformer Rammohan Roy at the beginning of the nineteenth century, as well as those of the first Christian theologians of India. The views of Mahatma Gandhi and the monks of the Ramakrishna Mission are discussed, and those of influential Christian schools such as the Ashram movement anddalit theology.Five intermezzos indicate how artists in India portray Jesus Christ.

J rgen Moltmann formulates necessary questions about the significance of Jesus the Christ for persons today. He offers a compelling portrait of the earthly Jesus as the divine brother in our distress and suffering and points to the risen Christ as the warrant for the "future in which God will restore everything . . . and gather everything into his kingdom." Urging that acknowledgment of Christ and discipleship are two sides of the same coin, Moltmann contends that the question of Jesus Christ for today is not just an intellectual one. Moltmann takes fresh approaches to a number of crucial topics: Jesus and the kingdom of God, the passion of Christ and the pain of God, Jesus as brother of the tortured, and the resurrection of Christ as hope for the world, the cosmic Christ, Jesus in Jewish- Christian dialogue, the future of God, and others.

This work is a presentation of the truth of Jesus Christ from the viewpoint of liberation - from Jesus's options for the poor, his confrontation with the powerful and the persecution and death this brought him. Building and expanding on his previous works, Jon Sobrino develops a Christology that shows how to meet the mystery of God, all God "Father" and call this Jesus "the Christ".
