Jesus Christ: Revealer of the Triune God A


Rev. Dr Phillip Gleeson SDB
Semester 1, 2020
Thursday 10.00am – 1.00pm

This unit will deal with aspects of the person and work of Jesus Christ. Particular attention will be paid to the question of Jesus as the question about the meaning of life; the search for the historical Jesus, and the New Testament origins of Christology. A systematic approach to the question of the self-understanding of Jesus, God and man, will also be developed.
Tutorial work will canvas key aspects of the theology of the Trinity.
