Searching for the humanity and divinity of Jesus: Chalcedon translated into twentieth century language. This article investigates the possibility of rephrasing the Chalcedon formula in such a manner that it will still be acceptable in the postmodern era, while at the same time not departing from its theological essence. Different views on humanity are compared. This is followed by a comparison of different views on divinity. The point is made that the perspective of the interpreter influences the results. This means that each new generation will view matters from a different perspective. The results indicate that a more dynamic way of rephrasing Chalcedon can contribute greatly to its acceptance today. The rephrasing is done here within the frame of reference of Wolfhart Pannenberg's understanding of history.
