This study begins by drawing attention to assumptions that are made about language, which it seeks to question. Whilst continuing the line of Christian tradition that marries Jewish religion with Greek philosophy, this study also aims to reinterpret that tradition in the light of more recent thought on the Logos that comes from Martin Heidegger. Where traditionally the Logos is equated primarily with divine Reason, it is only understood as language in a secondary and somewhat subservient manner. This incarnation occurs when the mind of man as genus is expressed or uttered through language, so as to approach and strike the external objects of sense that are shown by way of impressions pertaining to the species man. In the process, the divine ideas or essences that constitute the mind are made sensuous or substantial and so become flesh, whilst the external objects of sense are made intelligible or rational so as to be resurrected and made spirit. This dialectical move on account of language from the universal to the particular and from the particular to the universal, produces mankind itself as the Cosmos. This, it is further argued, is what constitutes the cosmic Christ's parousia, and is how God comes to be all in all. Finally, the assumptions made about language are revised, whilst answers to the two great theoretical problems of Christianity are proposed in line with our own findings.
