A central concern of contemporary Catholic christology is the faith-history relationship. This dissertation is an analysis of two quite distinct models of reckoning with this concern and the primary issues which it raises. Specifically, it compares and contrasts the thought of Hans Urs von Balthasar and Edward Schillebeeckx with regard to the theological narration of history and the theological significance of the Jesus of history within such narration. The host of issues which the Jesus of history raises will be focused herein upon the primary related topics of scriptural hermeneutics and the unity and diversity of the New Testament.
