On Possible Responses to the Gospel: Faith and Offense.

Robert Jenson on revelation and the promise of the Eucharistic meal:

“For the revelation to be revelation of God, it must pose the exclusive and exhaustive alternatives of faith and offense; it does so in that it comes as an object in the world; this object is Jesus of Nazareth and, in the situation of the church, the bread and wine; and in this connection, no distinction is made between Jesus and the bread and wine,” (Visible Words, 85).
