“It seems to me that Christian dogmatics must be an explication of Christ’s activity, the more so since Christ established no teaching but was active. He didn’t teach that there was redemption for man, he redeemed men….Christ’s nature was imparted through that activity, Christ’s relation to God, human nature, man’s situation conditioned by Christ’s activity (which was really the main thing). All the rest would then be regarded as mere introduction.”
