VAN DER WESTHUIZEN, Henco. STJ [online]. 2016, vol.2, n.1, pp.463-490. ISSN 2413-9467.

The following essay attempts to offer a framework for Michael Welker's ample theology of the Spirit by inquiring as to the impulses resonating from his God the Spirit. This is important because Welker's entire theological endeavour is built upon the insights emanating from his theology of the Spirit. In the first part of the essay Welker's theological hermeneutic with regards to the Spirit is made clear. The particular relation between the Spirit and Jesus Christ is explored in the second part of the essay. This relation is of importance in the light of his more recent God the Revealed: Christology. The work of the Spirit in the world is clarified in the third part of the essay. In the final part Welker's conception of the Spirit is examined in light of the Apostolicum.

Keywords : Michael Welker; Spirit of God; Biblical traditions; pluralism; Christology.
