THEO 310 - Jesus the Christ

3 Credit Hours
Jesus of Nazareth is the most famous name in history. But what do Christians mean when they call Jesus “the Christ”? Through scriptural, historical, and theological perspectives, students will explore current research on the historical Jesus, Christian reflection on Jesus’ person and work, and contemporary Christological models of Jesus (e.g. liberation, feminist). Among questions and issues that will be considered are Jesus’ self-understanding and the contemporary perception of him by his disciples and opponents; the development of Christological doctrine by the first generation of post-Resurrection Christians, specifically the evangelists and St. Paul; the development of later doctrines and dogmas during the patristic and imperial period; medieval and later developments; and the meaning of Jesus for women and men today.

This course will satisfy the core area requirement in theology.
