Incarnation In the Gospels and the Bhagavad Gita

Faith and Philosophy 6 (3):241-259 (1989)
This article is a venture into a Christian Theology of Other Faiths. In contrast to History of Religions, which seeks to understand a religion from its own point of view, a Christian Theology of Other Faiths seeks to understand another religion from the perspective of the Christian revelation.Here I present Simone Weil’s claim that the Word of God is manifest in human form in other faiths, and that the Gospels are written from the point of view of a victim, and are completed by the Bhagavad Gita which is written from the point of view of an agent who wields a sword
