The Person and Work of Christ (NSW)

Monday, 19th September @ 9:00 am - Wednesday, 21st September @ 5:00 pm

Two thousand years have come and gone but still the story of Jesus of Nazareth remains a story that refuses to go away. It continues to be told because from the very beginning, the man ‘Jesus’ was identified as being not only ‘of Nazareth,’ but also, crucially, as ‘the Christ’. A title that demands Jesus be acknowledged, proclaimed and worshiped as the Messiah, the one anointed by the Spirit to bring salvation to the world.

Christology (literally, the study of Christ) is the word given to the theological investigation into what it means to affirm that Jesus of Nazareth is, in fact, the Christ. In this unit we will begin such a study, looking at two aspects of Christology – firstly, the person of Christ and then what it is that Christ does (his works). There are key questions for both aspects that must be considered including, for example, what does an affirmation of the incarnation mean? What does it mean to say that Christ is both God and Man? What relationship does the Jesus of history actually have to the Christ of faith? How are we to understand what happened on the cross? How can that horrendous event possibly be necessary for redemption? How can I explain the saving significance of the cross in my context?

To help us address these questions (and more) we will look at Scripture, Church history and contemporary theological thought and practice in order to reflect on ways in which we can apply the truths we discover to our own life and ministry contexts. It is very easy – in some sense – to treat a study of Christology as an abstract, intellectual exercise. But we must always keep in mind that the Christ we talk and write about is the second person of the Godhead, who gave his life so that we might live. This will, therefore, be a personal journey of encounter—with the Jesus who walked the streets of Palestine and with the Christ of faith who will one day come again in power and glory.

This facilitation is designed to provide students with an understanding of the person and saving work of Jesus Christ. It seeks to explore this understanding in the light of contemporary Christian thought and life.
