Summary/Abstract: Words cannot express everything. When limited by the resources of language in our research, we begin to use gestures, colors, or sounds. We have the tendency to attempt using all our senses in order to find the right channel for expressing ourselves. A theologian should be a man of such complexity, making recourse to all the senses in his theological endeavors. He cannot remain content with his ability to understand, but must be able to see, hear, and feel. This essay, inspired by the work “Poetic Dogmatic” by the German theologian Alex Stock, intends to demonstrate such shift from the competence to understand to the ability to see and feel. The German theologian strives to combine intellect with emotion. His methodology is adopted in this article which reflects on the inscription on Jesus’ cross Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum.
