Abstract
This bachelor’s thesis aims to analyze and compare how two contemporary theologians, Roger Haight, S.J. and Ted Peters, understand the genesis of the faith in Jesus’ resurrection and its significance for the Christian understanding of Jesus from Nazareth. In order to fulfill this aim, I have mainly studied Jesus: Symbol of God and Ted Peters’ God – The World’s Future. From this inquiry, I firstly contend that Haight understands the resurrection of Jesus as a transcendent – subjective event. Hence, he argues that the genesis of the faith in Jesus’ resurrection has its origin within the minds of Jesus’ disciples. Furthermore Haight argues that the earthly ministry of Jesus – not so much the resurrection – should decide who Jesus really was.... (More)

Furthermore Haight argues that the earthly ministry of Jesus – not so much the resurrection – should decide who Jesus really was. Nevertheless, these interpretations stand in deep contrast to Peters’ understanding since he contends that the resurrection was an historical – objective event. Thus, Peters alleges that the genesis of the faith in Jesus’ resurrection lies in an experience that took place within this world. Additionally Peters suggests that the resurrection is nothing but central for the understanding of Jesus from Nazareth. As a conclusion, I argue that Peters in light of Pannenberg’s thinking presents the most convincing interpretation of the resurrection. (Less)
