On Christ as Object

There is a pattern throughout scripture that intrigues me. Christ is often presented as more than an entity. In my philosophical grid, I have noticed a system wherein existence can be expressed as entity acting within place or context. This grid which I developed as a child has helped me to sort out the categories of being. What fascinates me is that Christ is portrayed as more than an entity.

He is often portrayed as the axiom or even as place or space. Sometimes he’s portrayed as condition. Christ is called our peace in Ephesians 2. He is not represented as means of our peace. He is called our peace. In John 6 he is called truth, way, and life. This personification of Yeshua as trans-category has rich theological implications.
