Through Eberhard Jüngel’s interpretation, this article aims to analyze the theological implication of Barth’s theology of trinitarian revelation and analogy of faith. In the first part, I analyze that there are three ways to interpret Barth’s theology of revelation and his concept of analogy of faith. I illustrate that these three different perspectives can also be found within the Chinese theological circle. In the second part, I introduce Eberhard Jüngel’s interpretation of Barth. I argue that Jüngel’s interpretation, on the one hand, can help us to affirm a positive relation between revelation and theological discourse. On the other hand, it can keep the Creator-creatures distinction between God and human being. It can avoid the humanity of God being absorbed into the humanity of man. From this interpretation, I argue that Barth’s doctrine of revelation is not a fideism. The faith in the analogy of faith is “thinking after” God. It shows that the theological language is the possibility of human impossibility, and is a “correspondence” to the Triune God.
