Johannes Hoff's Teaching

University Database Lists of Johannes Hoff's Teaching can be found on the German page.

Hoff's teaching builds on the classical 'tractates' of Christian Doctrine: Jesus Christ as Alpha and Omega; The Triune God; Creation and Theophany; The Diabolic Evil; The Paradox of Grace; Apokatastasis and Theosis. The focus of this organic structure of biblical-patristic leitmotifs is marked be the topic of the first tractate: the responsive encounter with God in Jesus Christ. Already in early Christianity this spiritual encounter provoked a radical transformation of our understanding of God, man and nature as a whole: The world became transformed into a 'sym-bolic' universe, which is ordered towards a conceptually not objectifiable mystical ground – the divine 'Word', which had become visible in Jesus Christ. Against this background, Hoff's introductions to the patristic leitmotifs of Christian Doctrine put a special emphasis on the unity of philosophical thinking and spiritual practice. To this end, he draws on pre-modern thinkers such as Clement of Alexandria, Gregory of Nyssa, Augustine, Denys the Areopagite, Maximus Confessor, Thomas Aquinas, Meister Eckhart, Dante Alighieri, and Nicholas of Cusa. The writings of these spiritual masters provide us with a powerful guide out of the dia-bolic labyrinth of the 21st century: the 'attention deficit disorder' of a globalized network-society that is controlled by the automated guidance of transhumanist mega-corporations like Google, Facebook, and YouTube.
