God in History - "Early Christian Thought"

"That God was known in history, in the life of a human being, validated experience; it allowed Christian thinkers to appeal to the lives of holy men and women, especially the martyrs and saints, and to the experience of the church, as testimony to the truth of God...Christian thinking did not spring from an original idea, and it was not nourished by a seminal spiritual insight. It had its beginnings in the history of Israel and the life of a human being named Jesus of Nazareth, who was born of Mary, lived in Judea, suffered and died in Jerusalem, and was raised by God to new life."
