More On White Jesus Et Al

I adhere to a very high doctrine of the Incarnation. The first chapter of John’s Gospel is the gospel as far as I am concerned. Therefore, although the time and place of the Incarnation is useful to know in respect to the ordinary narrative of the life of Jesus it is of little import in respect to the metanarrative of our salvation history. The Christ of the metanarrative is not constrained by the accidents of his earthly life and so everybody is freed to imagine Christ in whatever image is most useful to them in respect of their salvation, both individually and communally.
