Los Alamos Faith and Science Forum (LAFSF) presents a talk by Morrie Pongratz “Christology without the ‘fall’ Do we need Adam and Eve? Impact on Jesus’ mission(s)”
Dr. Pongratz’s Zoom talk will be at 6:30 p.m., MDT, Wednesday, July 14.
Abstract: Science poses a number of challenges to the Genesis account of Adam and Eve. If there was no “fall”, then, contrary to Saint Anselm, Jesus’s mission was not to atone for Adam’s sin. Do we need Adam and Eve to understand Jesus? Did Jesus have to die? Why? What was/were Jesus’ mission(s)? Sacrifice, shepherd or pathfinder? Does good science reveal a more potent mission?
