By Ralph Larson
For the final a number of many years the human nature of Christ has been the topic of excessive examine in a few scholarly Seventh-day Adventist circles. The e-book of "Questions on Doctrine" (1957) set the degree for nearly 3 a long time of as but unresolved debate, witnessed so much lately within the opposing perspectives released facet by means of facet within the June 1985 factor of Ministry journal. Dr. Ralph S. Larson, for a number of years Coordinator of the Church and ministry division of the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, some distance east, enters the controversy with The observe was once Made Flesh, with a restricted, really really good aim. Dr. Larson doesn't deal at once with the total factor of Christ's human nature. He lines the knowledge of this element of Christology in the Seventh-day Adventist Church from 1852 till 1952. Dr Larson presents right here a reasonably complete survey of the ancient facts, and his contribution to the examine of this significant subject is intensely worthwhile. even if we agree or now not together with his conclusions, we're all indebted to him for the painstaking paintings of assembling this huge compilation of statements made in writing by means of Seventh-day Adventists for 100 years. For a few readers, cautious interpreting of "The be aware used to be Made Flesh" would possibly not supply all of the definitive solutions sought, even if, it's going to absolutely turn out to be for all a such a lot enriching and stimulating event.
