Eberhard Jüngel: the justification of humanity

“[T]he Christian faith must speak of God in such a way that it expresses the fact that God’s becoming human—even unto death on the cross—is the justification of a humanity which fails its own humanness.”

—Eberhard Jüngel, “Der alte Mensch,” in Entsprechungen: Gott—Wahrheit—Mensch (Munich: Kaiser, 1980), p. 320.
