In this article the central position of the concept of mystery in Eberhard Jiingel’s theology is discussed. The word is used by Jiingel in an explicitly anti-agnostic sense. Because of God’s identification with the Crucified Christ, His being can be ontologically thought of as ‘more than necessary’ and His presence as lying beyond the everyday interpretation of being present or absent. Notions such as God’s absence or His being hidden specify the concept of revelation. Critical attention is paid to Jiingel’s tendency to speculative thought.
