Show Summary Details


Christology refers to that branch of Christian theology concerned primarily with the person and work of Jesus. From the earliest days of the Christian movement the followers of Jesus attempted to say something meaningful about how they assessed his significance in their lives, their community, and, ultimately, the wider world. They used a variety of methods to express their deepest convictions regarding the one they believed had conquered death and would come again. If the literature they produced provides any clue, it is clear that they employed titles, told stories, developed liturgies, and reinterpreted their sacred scriptures and traditions to articulate their beliefs.
