A Critical Analysis of Jesus Christ’s Personality in the Light of the Attributes of God mentioned in the Encyclopedia of Religions

Journal Title: Journal of Religious Studies, University of Chitral - Year 2017, Vol 1, Issue 1

Abstract

The perfect meaning of God's attributes is far beyond the realm of human experience, therefore, the issue has been discussed in the all three divine religions and many theologians have their points of views on this important issue. As far as the Christian concept of the attributes of lord is concerned, the author of the article William Joseph Hill has not given any clear idea regarding the attributes in the Christian religious thought which can be accepted as the proper attributes of God. The basic reason for that is the existence of controversial beliefs and thoughts in Christianity regarding the attributes of lord and Jesus Christ.The doctrine of Trinity is also one of the main reason due to which the Christians are facing a lot of ambiguity about the nature and attributes of God and thus a big confusion in chirstian theology surfaced while dedicating attributes to God and Jesus and this thing paved the way for a great and infinite controversy. It seems that the author Joseph Hill was also not clear about it. Some of the attributes mentioned in the New Testament show their linkage to God while others to Jesus. Attributes like goodness, immanence, Grace, Justice, Holiness, Mercy, Omnipotence etc appear in the New Testament but yet no one can clearly say whether these are related to God or Jesus Christ.
