Relation, vulnerability, love are three concepts we consider important for a theological anthropology in the 21st century. Moreover, it is a trilogy we read in crescendo. That is, the primacy of relationality leads us to understand vulnerability as a universal human condition that is the condition of possibility for both suffering and flourishing. Love is the Christian notion that indicates the deepest reality of such relationality and vulnerability as well as its eschatological destiny. A central concern is that these three notions not only indicate or characterize the content of theological anthropology but also have implications for how theological anthropology is to be done.
