This unit will explore historical and contemporary discussions about Jesus Christ. It will begin with the New Testament witness to his life, death and resurrection, and the messianic interpretation of those events. The appropriation of that witness in ancient creeds, contemporary theological controversies and proposals, and the lives of his followers will be critically examined. The connections between the Church’s proclamation of Christ, patterns of discipleship, and practices of reconciliation and justice will be explored.
