Eberhard Jüngel: denying the divinity of humanity

“The specific task of theological anthropology ... can thus be defined as denying the divinity of humanity.... To let God be human in Jesus Christ, and for this very reason not to let humanity become God: this is the anthropological task which the Christian faith demands of thinking. Denying the divinity of humanity on the basis of the humanity of God would be the most rigorous interpretation of our humanity.”

—Eberhard Jüngel, Theological Essays I (Edinburgh: T&T Clark, 1989), p. 152.
