Jesus’ resurrection in Joseph’s garden

Schutte, F

Beskikbaarheid: In stock


Quick Overview

For inhabitants of a post-modern world, it is becoming increasingly difficult to merge the super-fast, fiercely rational paradigm of daily living with that of a religious tradition proclaiming the historicity of a virgin conception, a bodily resurrection from death, and the Bible as the one and only word of God.
In Jesus’ resurrection in Joseph’s Garden, Flip Schutte explores the events underlying the establishing of the Biblical canon, by redefining the role of myth in our religious experience and understanding. By explaining that the real purpose of myth is not to present an objective picture of the world, but to express man’s understanding of himself in the world, Schutte poignantly deconstructs the relationship between the resurrection of Christ (as event of salvation history), myth (as human attempt to understand and explain the transcendental) and the Biblical canon (as account of the unfolding of early Christian tradition). The reader is thus prompted to realize that the emphasis and value of Christ’s resurrection is not in its factuality as a historical event, but in the existential message surrounding the myth itself. Within this view, the resurrection becomes a metaphor for God’s love – a love that is not confined to the narratives of the Bible or the teachings of the Church, but that can be seen and read everywhere in His creation.


Flip Schutte is an inquisitive and passionate theologian who regards himself as a 'believer within the Christian paradigm'. He holds a PhD in Theology from the University of Pretoria and served in the ministry for 17 years. He lives in Witbank with his wife and four children.
