What is our participation in the divine humanity? According to Bulgakov, humans "consist of an uncreated, divine spirit . . . and of a created soul and body." Prior to Christ's coming, humans do not have the power to realize in themselves the new spiritual birth that is not of flesh and blood, but of God.
In explaining this important doctrine, Bulgakov begins by surveying the field of Christology with special reference to the divine humanity. He then considers the role of the Divine Sophia, examines the foundations of the Incarnation, explores the nature of Christ's divine consciousness, and ponders Christ's ministries while on Earth. A profound discussion of Christ's "kenosis" as a model for humanity rounds out this comprehensive and valuable study.
"The Lamb of God" is one of the greatest works of Christology in the twentieth century and a crowning achievement in the examination of the theology of divine humanity.
