Notes:

Anti-Climacus writes, the True Christian must approach Christ in contemporaneity. Otherwise there is no "possibility of offense", called "The Halt", which is crucial to "truly" believing.

There are two forms of offense: the historical, which vanishes with Christ's death, as it involved his appearance, etc. (?), and the ESSENTIAL. There are three essential offenses which one must consider before accepting Christ.

1.) Christ was an individual human coming into collision with the established order (and established religion) 2.) Christ was a man who spoke and acted as if he were God, and declared himself to be God 3.) Christ dared to pass himself off as God while being a lowly, poor, suffering, and finally powerless human being.

If you cannot accept a contemporaenous figure (i.e. hobo off the street calling himself the messiah), then you cannot accept Christ.
