    The theme in John’s Gospel, Christology from Above is the study of Jesus Christ. The theme explores Jesus Christ and tries to understand who He is. Also the gospel of John is interested in Jesus’s identity and mainly who He is. The theme of Christology from Above stresses three important things about Jesus including, Jesus’ heavenly origins, His identity as the Son of God, and His preexistence as the Word of God. One quote from John’s Gospel that relates to this theme is, "Jesus said to her, ‘Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father: but go to My brethren and say to them, 'I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God." (John 20:17) This quote relates to the ascension of Jesus, or when Jesus rose up to…

    theologians with regard to Christology which is a pointer to how can a son of God be a Savior and also be God’s sons and daughters? How does Jesus “maleness” connect to the other human kind? The image of God has two or more structural descriptions for many women because the same God of son serves as the source of life and as the theater of oppression. Women have equipped themselves with comfort and strength through their faith in Christ while at the same time experienced Christological…

    Many argue over just how relevant this statement is, and how literal to take the scriptures that speak of Jesus as the Son of God while he was on earth and made of flesh. High Christology views Jesus as God’s son which make him different that any other human for, Jesus took on human form, but did not lose his relationship as son of God, nor did he lose his divinity. He was set apart and chosen. The resurrection shows that God himself views him different than any other human form, “For God so…

    small businesses suffer, many corporate companies and major financing companies are enjoying the joy ride of increasing profits (The Price of Inequality, 469-70). Above all, Tanner’s economy of grace is strongly invited in the current global capitalist market in that her suggestion addresses the problem of people’s alienation in the market that operates under the rubric of profit maximization. However, I find the theological ground of Tanner’s economic suggestions problematic. To be…

As must be included Christology = What does Jesus Christ? The role of Jesus and the emphasis on the divinity and humanity that was a point in Tradition fell in historic levels.

    “Christian thinking about Jesus developed further after the writing of the New Testament and culminated in creedal statements” (Powell, 2008, p. 318). When processing the incarnation, many wonder how much of Jesus is human, and how much of Him is divine? After many attempts of trying to theorize the answer, a solution came from a letter written in 382 A. D. by a council of Bishops. They affirmed that Jesus Christ “flesh was not soulless nor mindless nor imperfect” in addition, “He became…

    Christology is the study of Jesus Christ. God sent His only son to this wicked earth to die for the sins of every man, woman, and child. Without Jesus, the world would be a very sinful place. Even in the Old Testament, people were talking about his first coming, and today, Christians are preparing for His second coming. There are many skeptics who know that there was a person named Jesus Christ who lived, but they do not believe the story of his birth. One of the more miraculous things about…

    The development of Christology in the patristic period of Christianity was formed out of two main arguments, the logos’ relation with God and the logos’ relation with the human Jesus. It was of agreement that Jesus the Christ was on earth and that he was the logos, i.e. “Word of God” or “Son of God”. Two orators in particular drew the proverbial line in the sand between homoousios and homoiousios, of the same and of similar substance as the Father. This division was later coined the Arian…

    For the majority of my life, I attended a non-denominational church, where we welcome all types of backgrounds and different combinations of Christian beliefs. Our church does not recite any historical creeds, but we do state our confessions. Alike, most Christians, we believe that God is the Father, Jesus is the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Christology can compare with Nicene orthodoxy because it is based on the study of Christ. I can agree with the Nicene Creed because I believe that the aspects…
