THEO 534 - Doctrine of Christ


A historical and systematic study of the doctrine of the person and work of Jesus Christ. This course surveys the primitive Christologies of the New Testament and continues by examining the Christological controversies of the early church (until the final crystallization in the Chalcedonian Creed). The basic questions of the doctrine of Christ will be investigated (e.g., the incarnation, the relation of the two natures of Christ, the divinity of Christ in relation to the Trinity). Consideration will be given to the several quests for the historical Jesus in the last century as well as a consideration of the “Jesus Seminar.” An examination of the various reconstructions of Christologies in the modern era (e.g., liberationist, feminist, and other Christologies) will be a part of this study. The centrality of Christ for other doctrines and for Christian proclamation will be stressed.
