Den tyske teologen Wolfhart Pannenbergs epifani

Publicerad 2019-09-19 16:03:00 i Divine revelations, History of theology, Wolfhart Pannenberg,

" On an early January day after receiving piano lessons, the young Pannenberg missed his train and began to walk home from school. Suddenly, as if from nowhere, he was struck by an otherworldly experience. He recorded the event that happened as follows:

I found myself absorbed in the light of the setting sun and for one eternal
moment dissolved into the light surrounding me. When I became aware
again of my finite existence, I did not know what had happened but certainly
knew that it was the most important event of my life; I spent many years
afterwards to find out what it meant to me."

(citerad i boken "Waiting for God: An examination and critique of prolepsis in the theology of Wolfhart Pannenberg", by Benjamin M. MacDonald)


Pannenberg var 16 när han upplevde detta.

Epifani betyder "plötslig gudomlig uppenbarelse".
