VAN WYK, Gabriël M.J. (Gafie). Faith in the resurrection of Jesus: Barth and Bultmann. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2013, vol.69, n.1, pp.1-10. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article aims to contribute to the understanding of the views of Barth and Bultmann on the interpretation of Jesus' resurrection. It deliberately steers away from the abundance of secondary material available on the subject and focuses on the relevant primary sources with the result that the differences between the two authors come sharp into focus. The fundamental difference between Barth and Bultmann is not that Barth believes that Jesus has truly risen from the grave, but that Bultmann does not believe it. The hermeneutical question about the presence of Jesus Christ, the risen Lord and his work of salvation is the central issue of Christology for both theologians, but this is also the point on which they differ radically from each other. The Auseinandersetzung between Barth and Bultmann indicates how ongoing and intensive theological discourse can benefit the proclamation of the gospel and the church.
