Eberhard Jüngel: ever more human

“The Christian faith is that human view of God in which the human person trusts in the fact that God became and is human, in order that humanity can be human and can become ever more human. More briefly: the essence of the Christian faith is the proper distinction between God and humanity, between a human God and a humanity becoming ever more human.”

—Eberhard Jüngel, “Was ist ‘das unterscheidend Christliche’?” in Unterwegs zur Sache: Theologische Bemerkungen (Munich: Kaiser, 1972), p. 299.
