Spirit of Vatican II

Perhaps I am a little too bland above, in saying that Jesus lives his human nature the same as everyone else does. Every article of Christian belief has an inbuilt paradoxical tension, even the ones that seem obvious, such as the humanity of Christ or the reality of free will. For these seemingly obvious doctrines have to co-exist with others that seem to contradict them -- in this case, the sinlessness of Christ, his divine identity, his virginal birth. Christology from below rightly seeks to lessen these tensions, but a bland naturalism must be avoided.
