, Christina M. Gschwandtner

Using the Gospel account of the resurrected Christ’s encounter with the two disciples on the way to Emmaus, Marion argues that faith is not about making up for a lack of intuitions, but about the fact that our concepts fail to grasp the abundance of intuitive given. The disciples cannot and do not want to understand; they have no concepts for grasping what presents itself as fully given. Christ must provide the hermeneutic, which ultimately occurs in the gift of the broken bread. Christ as the logos gives them his meaning.
