ABSTRACT

Is Jesus Christ an obstacle, or a peace offering inthe period of religious pluralism?In-Sik Choi, Dr. theol. Professor, Department of TheologySeoul Theological UniversityThe first purpose of this article is to reveal the substance of theologicalreligious pluralism that doubt the identity of modern christianity, thesecond purpose is to urge scholars of the Old Testament to make the rightjudgement in the texts of the Old Testament, and the last purpose is topropose the way of reconciliation among religions. For the first purpose Iintroduced the various theories of scholars, and I analysed the theologicalreligious pluralism that the Baar statement of WCC claims. The Baarstatement rest on the theology of religions by J. Hick and R. Panikkar. Als the Propose for the reconciliation among religions I made anattempt at the biblical interpretation(Genesis, Isaiah 60, Ephesians 2 etc)that can support the pacificatory meeting among the Judaism, Christianityand Islam, and ultimately I suggested that Jesus Christ is not an obstacleof interfaith conversation but a peace offering. Lastly I claimed that thewith doctrine and creed armed Christianity must be reformed firstly as theChristianity of the Soul for the interfaith reconciliation, otherwise it's nevergoing to make the interfaith reconciliation as the theological theory of thereligious pluralism.
