Earlier this week I asked, what does negative theology look like from a Christ-centred perspective? Reflecting on this further I was drawn to ask, what was unknown even to Jesus? Sound like a strange question? Well, consider what Jesus said about the last days:
“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Mark 13:32
So, omnipotence was illusive even for God incarnate. How much more so for us then? It is important to recognize the limits of our knowledge. It’s important to flesh out a negative theology even as we affirm Jesus as the revelation of God. I’m thinking that negative theology can potentially function as a corrective against theological arrogance.
