(p.297) VIII Easter Faith as Remembering and Knowing
The Structure of Resurrection Belief

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the transferring of the image of Christ within the Christian community by remembering and acknowledging His living presence. At its core is the faith and remembrance of Jesus not only as a memory, but as Christus praesens. In the chapter the concepts of remembering Jesus and knowing Christ are defined and distinguished. Although both refer to knowledge of Christ, the two are nonetheless different and distinct. The Jesus who is remembered is the Jesus as he was in the days of His flesh, from birth to death on the cross. This knowledge is a kind of knowledge by description rather than by acquaintance. Knowing Jesus, on the other hand, refers to the raised Christ, who is known by acquaintance in the present. It is the Spirit of Jesus in the here and now with which faith is identified and thus known.
