Knitter's Models III

Seeing Judaism Anew: Christianity's Sacred Obligation,
Ed. Mary C. Boys, Rowman and Littlefield, 2002
Chapter Jesus as the Universal Saviour, "127-137", page 129-130

Peter Phan then goes on to consider the four models of contemporary theology proposed by Paul F. Knitter: replacement, fulfillment, mutuality and acceptance.

The third model - mutuality - holds that there are many trye religions, none necessarily superior to the others, which are all called to dialogue and collaborate with each other, especially in projects of liberation, in order to ralise their true nature.

This approach takes the New Testament passages of exclusivity and presents them as poetry affirming Jesus' special character but not his exclusivity. He may be wholly G-d - because he fully responded to G-d's love in the pirit - but not the whole of G-d or divine.
