O acesso a Jesus num contexto de disseminação do crer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Taking as a starting point an analysis of hermeneutic aspects of access to Jesus, through the interaction of the past (of His history) with the present (interpretations of the figure of Christ), this article leads to an analysis of various elements characteristic of the presentday “dissemination of belief”. It assesses in depth the situation of the context of interpretation of Jesus in contemporary culture, exploiting challenges that demand a discernment that is both wise and prophetic: wise, to the extent that the new hermeneutic context leads to a reinterpretation of actual belief, taking into account new pragmatic and linguistic codes; prophetic, to the extent that this reinterpretation can never set aside critical discernment and the proper denunciation of elements that conflict, more or less clearly, with faith in Jesus Christ. The challenges perceived are met with concrete proposals for Christian approximation and prophecy, based on the permanent reference of the figure of Jesus.
