La figure gnostique du Christ selon Michel Henry

Abstract : The question of Christ is at the heart of henryan philosophy. Far from considering it as a problem exclusively reserved for the trilogy, where Michel HENRY fully analyzes his philosophy of christianity, the question of Christ, on the contrary, crosses all his philosophy, from his early writings to his trilogy composed of It is me the truth, Incarnation and Words of Christ. The radicality of henryan phenomenology opens up to anthropology in the triptych. Christ henryen is therefore bearer of a double truth, namely : firt, the truth of God, to the extent that he makes God known ; second, the truth of man, insofar as he accounts for the true condition of man which is that of his divine parentage. To know man is to know him from Christ. This is our initial problem bearing witness to Christ as the truth of man. And to know man is to know that he is the son of God. Christ as a condition of man’s divine filiality. So the originality of Michel HENRY’s Christ is to show that man is son of God, and to make discover or rediscover the divine parentage of man. How does Christ grant divine parentage to man ? This question undoubtedly raises our hypothesis of the departure of the centrality of Christ in all human relations, which opens up to the hypothesis of Christ as the mediator of man. He is a mediator of man with God, with others and with oneself. Finally, Michel HENRY presents us with a ternary or triangular Christ. In other words, Michel HENRY’s Christ is both an ethical Christ, a mystical Christ, and a phenomenological Christ.
