The Body of Christ: Amen!: The Expanding Incarnation

The article aims to refresh Christian sensibilities to the bodily character of ecclesial existence. It links Christ’s incarnation with the continuing formation of his Body, arguing against any suggestion that the incarnation is less real following his resurrection and ascension than prior to them. Though massive changes have occurred in our understanding of the material universe, the expanding event of the incarnation remains the focus of Christian intentionality. In its commitment to the reality of God-with-us in Christ, an adequate theology of the Body of Christ can appeal to various analogical perspectives on the meaning of “bodiliness.”
