Incarnation theology is all about God sharing our time. Within this theology is an understanding of being a friend of God.
In the Old Testament, Abraham can be seen as the first friend of God. In the New Testament Lazarus a friend of Jesus. (One of David Bowie’s releases was called ‘Lazarus’).
Robin Gamble talk of Jesus being an overwhelming friend of others then and now. While religion tries to avoid the world, Jesus was involved, is involved through his being our grace friend – a two way relationship!
