Jesus in the New Universe StoryJesus in the New Universe Story
by Cletus Wessels, OP

At the center of the Christian tradition stands the figure of Jesus Christ, a Palestinian Jew who lived two thousand years ago. The background of his story is a story of creation, which emerged in the ancient Jewish tradition. The story of Adam and Eve, their expulsion from Eden, and the subsequent “history of salvation,” is familiar to all Christians. But how does this story fit in with a new cosmological story—the story of an emerging universe popularly known as the “New Universe Story”?

Many Christians are disturbed by the apparent contradictions between the old story of faith and the new story of modern physics. Father Wessels’s challenge is to maintain the underlying reality of the biblical story of Jesus while reinterpreting that story through the lens of an “emerging” universe. Breathing new life into ancient images and symbols, Wessels leads the way to a fresh language of faith for our time.
