Jesus And Christology - 1,306 words
Theologians and philosophers have been trying to question who Jesus is for hundreds of year now. This time in the form of what is called the contemporary study of Christology. The thrust of Christology is somewhat dependent upon which theologian one reads. Hans Kung calls his approach Christology from below. Others simply focus on the crucifixion and the resurrection of Christ (Cunningham); others are exploring His life and work on earth (Imbelli). Some deny the fact that Jesus is God (Kung), others express strongly that yes, Jesus is part of the Triune and is God (Cunningham and Imbelli). "Christology" literally means the study of Christ. Christianity is founded on the belief that Jesus wal ...

Theology Thesis - 1,523 words
In the face of one of the biggest fears known to man-death-the Catholic faith provides a positive outlook upon the loss of ones physical presence on earth. Through the life and death of Jesus Christ (the hypostatic union of son and Father,) a Christocentric theology resolves the mystery of death through faith and grace. Gods only Sons death grants a Catholic Christian with an answer to the why of death, resulting in a realistic, yet hopeful attitude toward the loss of the physical being, while continuing to believe in the flourishing life of the spirit in a realm beyond our understanding.

Jesus - 788 words
Jesus was considered the greatest man who ever lived. A carpenters son with no wealth and little education, he stands as the dominant figure of Western Civilization and towers over all world history (web 1). The explanation for his execution has been discussed for a very long time. The two major historical explanations are that he died to atone for humanitys sins and that Romans did not want Jesus to have the power they knew he capable of obtaining.

It must take an incredible powerful person to die for everyone elses sins and rise from ...

A Brief Summary Of Jesus As A Figure In History And From Jesus To Christ - 970 words
In the past few decades many changes have occurred in the way scholars approach the study of Jesus. The main idea shifted from undisputable belief type of analysis to critical one, which analyses the person of Christ from the scientific and historical point of view. This popular subject finds its followers in many spheres of our cultural life: books, movies, and even music. During the semester I was introduced to two different works that examine Jesus - the book of Mark Allan Powell that is named Jesus as a Figure in History and television series of Frontline From Jesus to Christ. Both works are very interesting and somewhat controversial, and I will point out the subject and main ideas of t ...
