Dr. Gavrilyuk’s talk explores the arguments for and against the claim that God suffers. He suggests that contemporary theologians who accept the claim often misinterpret the classical Christian view of divine impassibility and involvement in suffering. Dr. Gavrilyuk defends the classical Christian view, succinctly expressed in the formula that in the Incarnation “the Impassible suffered.”
