Welcome to this research guide for Christology: Jesus, Son of God in the Spirit.. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CWA paper.
The Christian faith rests entirely on a person’s confession that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and Lord over the nations in the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. This course will discuss what it has meant for Christians to confess Jesus as the Christ throughout church history, how Western philosophy and culture have impacted this confession, and what is necessary for Christians today to be faithful to that confession in their own contexts and cultures. Recent trends in theology, philosophy, biblical studies, and modern culture call for a renewed emphasis on the biblical narrative in a person’s confession that Jesus is the Son of God. This course will show how the biblical narrative determines meaning for the church’s faithful witness to Christ’s lordship, its proclamation of the gospel, and its making of other disciples.
Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.
