Dr Robinson was considered a major force in shaping liberal Christian theology.
This is similar to the Jewish practice of rendering Yahweh as YHVH, YH or YY.
More interestingly, the name of Jesus was written ΙΣ rather than ΙΕΣΟΥΣ, i.e., 'J-S' rather than 'Jesus', in English transliteration.
If that is so, we could not say that the Gospel of St.
Mark was written in 45, as we can say, for example, that Second Corinthians was written in 55 or 56. Baur (1792-1860), an Hegelian rationalist, held that the Gospels were written between 130 and 170.
Robinson proposed abandoning the notion of a God "out there", existing somewhere out in the universe as a "Cosmic supremo," just as we have abandoned already the idea of God "up there", the notion of the old man up in the sky.
