DESCRIPTION

Many Enneagram pundits say that Jesus encompasses all the nine types (footnotes*1*2).

The Enneagram is a PERSONAL GROWITH TOOL. This growth is achieved by getting out of your compulsion and attaining the healthy behavior patterns that are possible for a given type. As we do this, we can embody ALL the type energies. In fact, when one's type is not easily observed by another, or by a test, it can be a compliment that you are healthy and have moved beyond your identifying compulsion.

 

 

Yet the Sufis thought that Jesus was an evolved TWO *3.

Christian theology posits that Jesus is 100% divine and 100% human. Being human, it then follows that he would have an Enneagram type.

It is my opinion that Jesus, being truly human, will have exactly one Enneagram type.

 

In this meeting Paul will present on what some authors say of Jesus' type.

Beth Kuper will present on the "Archetypal Savior", which includes Jesus and many others *4.

Then participants will be invited to state their opinion of Jesus' type, and to present supporting evidence. Paul will present his views as well.

 

 

NO FAITH in a religion is REQUIRED for this discussion! Atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Zoroastrians, and all others will be welcomed and affirmed in this meeting.

THERE IS NO ANSWER to the question of what is Jesus' type! Self-typing and self-discovery is an important aspect of the Enneagram, so the only way to discern Jesus' type is for Jesus to decide.

The goal of this exercise is to gain insights into the personhood of Jesus and as we learn from each other - each of our views is completely valid and will be encouraged.
