VAN NIEKERK, A S. The dispute about the resurrection at the Faculty of Theology at UP: A discussion with Prof Julian Müller. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.30, n.1, pp.320-348. ISSN 2074-7705.

In recent years some of the lecturers at the Faculty of Theology at the University of Pretoria were confronted with the question whether they believed in the historical and physical resurrection of Jesus. This article focuses on a book on the resurrection in which one of these lecturers, professor Julian Müller of Practical Theology, responds to this question. He refuses to answer with a simple "yes ", because he feels the question originates from a fundamentalist and modernistic theology, in which the aim is to take control of the truth. He offers a postmodern interpretation. In this article an effort is made, from the viewpoint of Missiology, to understand his views as he wishes them to be understood, and to respond to it. In Missiology, through the theological rediscovery of Biblical eschatology, the physical and historical resurrection of Jesus has become of central importance again, also in a postmodern paradigm. In conclusion, an effort is made to understand the role of our Faculty of Theology within our Southern African context.
