Karl Barth

Dátum narodenia: 10. máj 1886
Dátum úmrtia: 10. december 1968

Karl Barth bol nemecko-švajčiarsky teológ, ktorý je zakladateľom a hlavným priekopníkom a predstaviteľom dialektickej teológie. Nezmazateľne sa zapísal do dejín systematickej teológie a to predovšetkým svojou literárnou tvorbou, v ktorej len jeho Cirkevná dogmatika, predstavuje dielo počtom 10 tisíc strán. Tento teologický velikán 20. storočia osobne vyrastal pod vplyvom liberálnej teológie, ale v plynutí času a udalostí jeho vlastná cesta viedla iným smerom. K tomu mu dopomohla osobná kríza viery, ktorú prežil ako reformovaný kazateľ v zbore, otrasné udalosti prvej svetovej vojny ako aj ďalšie filozofické a teologické vplyvy, ktoré ho viedli k definitívnemu rozchodu so všetkými dôrazmi liberálnej teológie.

„The Gospel is not a religious message to inform mankind of their divinity or to tell them how they may become divine. The Gospel proclaims a God utterly distinct from men.“

—  Karl Barth, kniha The Epistle to the Romans

The Epistle to the Romans (1918; 1921)
Kontext: The Gospel is not a religious message to inform mankind of their divinity or to tell them how they may become divine. The Gospel proclaims a God utterly distinct from men. <!-- p. 28

„We are now assuming that we have here the centre and goal of all God's works, and therefore the hidden beginning of them all.“

—  Karl Barth, kniha Church Dogmatics

2:1 <!-- p. 661 -->
Church Dogmatics (1932–1968)
Kontext: We are now assuming that we have here the centre and goal of all God's works, and therefore the hidden beginning of them all. We are also assuming that the prominent place occupied by this divine work has something corresponding to it in the essence of God, that the Son forms the centre of the Trinity, and that the essence of the divine being has, so to speak, its locus … in His work, in the name and person of Jesus Christ.

„Our Yes towards life from the very beginning carries within it the Divine No which breaks forth from the antithesis and points away from what now was the thesis to the original and final synthesis. The No is not the last and highest truth, but the call from home which comes in answer to our asking for God in the world.“

—  Karl Barth

The Word of God and the Word of Man (1928)
Kontext: Our Yes towards life from the very beginning carries within it the Divine No which breaks forth from the antithesis and points away from what now was the thesis to the original and final synthesis. The No is not the last and highest truth, but the call from home which comes in answer to our asking for God in the world.<!-- p. 312

„He is the One who stands above us and also above our highest and deepest feelings, strivings, intuitions, above the products, even the most sublime, of the human spirit.“

—  Karl Barth

This is paraphrased in "Karl Barth's Conception of God" (1952) http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/primarydocuments/Vol2/520102BarthsConceptionOfGod.pdf by Martin Luther King, Jr.: God is the one who stands above our highest and deepest feelings, strivings and intuitions.
Dogmatics in Outline (1949)
Kontext: He is the One who stands above us and also above our highest and deepest feelings, strivings, intuitions, above the products, even the most sublime, of the human spirit. God in the highest means first of all … He who is in no way established in us, in no way corresponds to a human disposition and possibility, but who is in every sense established simply in Himself and is real in that way; and who is manifest and made manifest to us men, not because of our seeking and finding, feeling and thinking, but again and again, only through Himself. It is this God in the highest who has turned as such to man, given Himself to man, made Himself knowable to him … God in the highest, in the sense of the Christian Confession, means He who from on high has condescended to us, has come to us, has become ours.<!-- p. 37

„The Truth lies not in the Yes and not in the No, but in the knowledge and the beginning from which the Yes and the No arise.“

—  Karl Barth

The Word of God and the Word of Man (1928)
Kontext: The Truth lies not in the Yes and not in the No, but in the knowledge and the beginning from which the Yes and the No arise. <!-- p. 72

„In Jesus, God really becomes a mystery, makes himself known as the unknown, speaks as the eternally Silent One.“

—  Karl Barth, kniha The Epistle to the Romans

The Epistle to the Romans (1918; 1921)
Kontext: The revelation in Jesus, just because it is the revelation of the righteousness of God is at the same time the strongest conceivable veiling and unknowableness of God. In Jesus, God really becomes a mystery, makes himself known as the unknown, speaks as the eternally Silent One.<!-- p. 73

„We must be clear that whatever we say of God in such human concepts can never be more than an indication of Him; no such concept can really conceive the nature of God. God is inconceivable.“

—  Karl Barth

Dogmatics in Outline (1949)
Kontext: When attempts were later made to speak systematically about God and to describe His nature, men became more talkative. They spoke of God's aseity, His being grounded in Himself; they spoke of God's infinity in space and time, and therefore of God's eternity. And men spoke on the other hand of God's holiness and righteousness, mercifulness and patience. We must be clear that whatever we say of God in such human concepts can never be more than an indication of Him; no such concept can really conceive the nature of God. God is inconceivable. <!-- p. 46

„To look to Him is to see Him at the very centre, to see Him and the history which, accomplished in Him, heals everything and all things, as the mystery, reality, origin and goal of the whole world, all men, all life.“

—  Karl Barth, kniha Church Dogmatics

4:4 <!-- p. 150 -->
Church Dogmatics (1932–1968)
Kontext: Since Jesus Christ is a servant, looking to Him cannot mean looking away from the world, from men, from life, or, as is often said, from oneself. It cannot mean looking away into some distance or height. To look to Him is to see Him at the very centre, to see Him and the history which, accomplished in Him, heals everything and all things, as the mystery, reality, origin and goal of the whole world, all men, all life. To look to Him is to cleave to Him as the One who bears away the sin of the world. It is to be bound and liberated, claimed, consoled, cheered and ruled by Him.
