From the Revd Jonathan Frais

Thank you for Christopher Smith’s ‘the way we live now’ (ND, December) in which he explains that, “since God himself has lived among us in the person of the Jesus Christ, there could be no theological objection to depicting God”. In fact, some questions remain: why are no details of our Lord’s appearance preserved in Scripture? Why is apostolic eye-witness testimony sufficient (John 20v31; 1 John 1v1-4)? And does not the episode of the golden calf (Exodus 32) remind us to live by faith, not sight? Please, let the dialogue continue!
