  • Trinitarian Atonement Analysis

    Barth’s understanding of God’s being in act helps us strengthen the ontological basis of the Trinitarian atonement by reconstructing the notion of the triune God through the incarnation. As we have seen above, Barth conceives of God’s being in terms of act, not in terms of substance. Understanding God’s being in terms of substance often gives us complications to understand how the triune God works in eternity and in time without changing his substance. When it comes to the incarnation, this identity problem seems to become more obvious. How could divine God become human without changing his substance? To preserve divine immutability in the incarnation, the doctrine of God has been developed based on a priori probability. As a result, God’s being tends to be considered hypostatically apart from and prior to the reality of God in the life and work of Jesus Christ. Darren Sumner well describes a general consensus about this position. He writes: “While humanity is necessary to the constitution of the Mediator, it does not touch the divine essence in which the Word of God subsists immanently. Thus the inner life of the triune God remains without change, even as the Word takes on a second nature and becomes compound… Because God is thought not to change in His essence, it seems that the theologian must conclude that God’s becoming human in the person of the Son in necessarily an opus Dei ad extra (external work of God). It cannot be otherwise, since the compound being of…
