The Core of Our Faith
Note that in Paul’s rendition of the “gospel of God” as he called it, we are told more about who Christ is than what he says or does. Paul cites no events from Jesus’s life nor any words from his sermons. The core of the faith is Jesus, who he is, God with us. Note also that in Paul’s characterization of the core of the faith, he says not a word about what we are to do, think, or feel about Jesus. The main thing is Jesus, who he is, God with us.
