Paradox and Christology

In John's interview with Robert Wright, I heard John use the example of how quantum particles can be in a mixture of two places at once, to point out that our encounter the universe may prove to be "stranger than we can think." He further went on to say that, "if this is true of how we encounter the world, then it maybe truer of how we encounter God." How does this statement relate to an orthodox view of Christ?

I think John’s main points are:
  • “common sense” is a poor guide to deep truth.
  • Although of course the orthodox view of Christ affirms many true and wise things, it is also part of the orthodox view that our human “wisdom” is inadequate to understand God.
