Robaert Jenson promotes a narrative theology of the Trinity which he calls ”revisionary” metaphysics. But, it raises concerns about the proper relation between God, time, and creation. The author argues that the problem is in Jenson's understanding of the nature of narrative. A comparison of Eberhard Jüngel and Jenson's theology of the Trinity through their interpretation of Barth finds that Jenson overlooks the communicative complexity of the event of God's self-revelation. Jüngel's understanding of analogical, communicative, and hermeneutical dimensions of the Triune narrative (i.e., as word-event) shows a direction in which we may revise Jenson's theological project.
