  THREE DIVINE ONENESSES: Trinitarian oneness, Christological oneness, Christian oneness
Christological oneness is the explanation of deity and humanity being hypostatically united in the one God-man, Jesus Christ.
By this Christological action of the Trinitarian God and the subsequent redemptive and restorative action of God in Christ, He has taken the continued unitive action of creating spiritual Christian union as the Spirit of Christ and the spirit of man are conjoined in the union of "one spirit" (cf.
The incarnation of the Son, uniting deity and humanity in the Christological oneness of the person and work of Jesus Christ was for the purpose of the expansion of the presence and action of the Trinitarian Being in action in all created humanity.

 Manuela Kalsky - Christaphanies
The focus is mainly on the contextual differences and the concomitant diversity of experiences and images of oppression and salvation, which present a hermeneutic challenge for an ecumenical feminist revision of christology.
Such a christological model calls for a relational concept of identity in which mutual differences are seen as enriching rather than threatening.
Its image of Jesus as the liberator of the oppressed is reflected in feminist christological models with a liberation theology slant.

 CHRISTOLOGICAL PREACHING ON HISTORICAL MATERIALS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
In this method of treatment the Christological element can hardly be "found" except by way of analogy or parallel, or by stressing in the "application" the fact that we are living in the new dispensation.
If I remove a small portion in order to view it in isolation, so that it is no longer a part of the whole, I lack all certainty that the right of a correct exegesis has been accorded to that specific portion (or to that person and his acts) of the Bible.
But the Christological character of a given historical portion is not preserved by discovering some "type" in it.

 CHRISTOLOGICAL PREACHING ON HISTORICAL MATERIALS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
But if the Christological character of the Old Testament revelation is established, it must be reckoned with in every respect in the process of interpretation.
Although the adherents to the Reformed confessions are united in their principal rejection of the Christological exegesis inspired by Barth's theology, this does not mean that all its adherents are mutually agreed on this point.
The joy of Darius when he beheld Daniel safe in the lion's den is a type of Mary Magdalene's joy when she saw the risen Christ [54].

 Images of Jesus in India
While this pluralism in Christological reflection seems evident to us today, it was not so in the past.
In the context of such a theology, the Christological reflection tends to focus on the question of the uniqueness and universality of Jesus Christ as Saviour.
Christological reflection itself seems caught up with the questions of the uniqueness and universality of Christ.

 A Christological Hermeneutic: Crisis and Conflict in Hermeneutics
Christological exegesis, when applied to the Old Testament, often takes the form of typological exegesis in which the acts of God in Old Testament history as well as the prophecies of his servants are seen to have their fulfillment in Jesus Christ.
But the deepest christological significance of this story is that God's grace covers the sins of all people, for we are all Cains in the sight of God before whom we are all guilty of the murder of his Son.
To affirm the christological meaning of the binding of the strong man entails a belief in a personal demonic adversary of God and humanity, called in the Bible Satan, Leviathan, Beelzebul, and the devil.

A clarification of what the "Nestorian" Christological definition actually consists of and means, by both the Church of the East and other Churches, would be an important bridge connecting our differing vocabularies and points of view.
When the apostolic faith is expressed in different ways as a result of using differing methods in theology, in accordance with one's own language, tradition, philosophical terminology, and idioms, over a period of time, the result will be that these differences may implicate a divergent meaning of interpretation, as well.
A significant part of the Christological teachings of the Council of Chalcedon has been accepted by the Church of the East, and the Council is included among the various "Western" synods considered canonical.

 The Christocentric Liberal Tradition
In their ideas as to the origin of man, the Christological Liberals clashed with both rigid orthodoxy on their right and naturalistic humanism on their left.
Nothing was more characteristic of the Christological Liberals than their stress on the dignity and worth of the human personality.
Christological Liberals were more concerned with the effects of sin than its origin.

 Jacques Dupuis, SJ - Religious Plurality and the Christological Debate
The Christological question, not the ecclesiological one is at the heart of the debate; and in whatever way theology may conceive the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Church, both can never be placed on one and the same level of necessity.
This last point does not amount to saying that the 'how' of salvation outside the Church lies altogether beyond the scope of theological investiga-tion; however, whatever theological explanation may be given would have to preserve the reference to Christ and his Spirit.
The first is that at stake in the Christological debate in the context of religious plurality is the traditional Christocentrism of much of Christian theology.

 The Christological Controversies
The theory of Apollinaris was denounced in different quarters, and finally received an authoritative condemnation from the council of Constantinople in 381.
It was not, however, till the early part of the fifth century that the more turbulent era of the Christological controversy was introduced.
The Maronites, dwelling in the Lebanon region, were an offshoot of the closing era of the Christological controversies in the seventh century.

And These Three Are One: A Trinitarian Critique of Christological Approaches to the Old Testament: pg.
In this article, I will argue that a thoroughly trinitarian perspective of God necessarily involves a revisioning of christological interpretations of the Old Testament.
I want to consider what difference it makes if one reads the Old Testament (and all of Scripture for that matter) with a theology that is trinitarian in orientation andhow that perspective may allow or disallow distinctively christological approaches.

 The Christological Controversy
Though dying in union with the Church and highly revered, his theology came into question after his death for perceived Nestorian trademarks, and some of his writings, along with his doctrine of the incarnation, were condemned at the Second Council of Constantinople, 533.
Patriarch of Constantinople in AD 428, Nestorius inherited the Christological paradigmes of his predecessors in the Antiochene tradition, Diodore of Tarsus and Theodore of Mopsuestia.
Cyril is remembered above all for his Christological disputes with Nestorius, in which he came most famously to define the incarnation as an hypostatic union of appropriation.

 NOTES ON EARLY CHRISTOLOGICAL DOCTRINES STARR
The Chalcedonian perspective still allows leeway for unique and even new christological formulations and perspectives, even within the orthodoxy of early Christianity.
In fact, what human beings believe to be true about human persons and communities in general, about what human nature is, is directly connected to what they think they need to be saved from or for.
Pronounced not as a credal statement, but as a clarification of the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed of 325, the Chalcedon Definition more or less settles the christological controversy in the West, but the debate continued in the East.

 REFLECTIONS ON ROSARIUM VIRGINIS MARIAE
Paul VI described it as a Gospel prayer, centred on the mystery of the redemptive Incarnation: "the Rosary is therefore a prayer with a clearly Christological orientation" (Paul VI, Apostolic Exhortation Marialis Cultus, n.
The Holy Father John Paul II pointed out the Christological aspect in his two-year cycle of Marian catecheses (1995-1997), when he presented the Rosary as the prayer clearly directed to the goal of "the Glorification of Christ" (John Paul II, Prayers to Mary, General Audience, 5 November 1997, n.
To complete and reinforce its Christological depth, the Pope felt it appropriate to include the mysteries of Christ's public ministry between his Baptism and his Passion, in which he reveals himself as "the light of the world" (Jn 9,5).

 Christological argument - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Christological argument for the existence of God is a relatively modern argument.
In such a context, the historicity of Jesus of Nazareth naturally takes on enhanced urgency; the usual historian's questions of documentation, authentication, and the like, tend to be removed from ordinary historical discourse, to take supportive places within Christological theology.
The Christological argument is typically in the context of arguments for the existence of God and does not necessarily use the trilemma.

 The Christological and Ecclesiological Dimensions of Moral Theology by Rev. Brian P. Christensen
There are three aspects or dimensions of moral theology to which Melina draws our attention: the first person perspective, the Christological foundation, and the ecclesial nature of Christian moral life.
In this, he seeks to place Christian morality upon a firm Christological foundation and within the context of the ecclesial communion of faith.
Beginning with this turn to the first person perspective, Melina is able to move easily to the Christological foundations of a renewed moral theology.

 Jesus; Miriam's Child, Sophia's Prophet by Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza
Rather, the "reality" and vision of the ekklesia of wo/men is a hermeneutical, discursively constructed articulation that seeks to make conscious that cultural "common-sense" patriarchal religion and malestream democracy have been exclusive of women, be they human or divine.
Like Cady Stanton, they assume, without critically questioning their own presuppositions, that at the heart of the christological system is an intrinsic connection between original sin and female gender as well as between redemption and male gender; therefore they cannot but reject Christian faith as intrinsically misogynist.
Both her criticism of the myth of femininity and her christological arguments are rooted in her own experience that Jesus alone heard her in the hour of her greatest exploitation and dehumanization when slavery robbed her of her children.

 Commonweal - A review of religion, politics and culture
Christological heresies result when one story cancels the other.
It is easy for ascending Christologists to fall into patterns that shortchange the true divinity of Christ, and for descending Christologists to slip into patterns that practically deny Christ’s humanity.
We do need to get our Christological stories straight when we respond to, "Who do you say that I am?" We do need to show that we can talk without contradiction of God’s universal salvific will and the scandalous particularity of the incarnate and risen Lord.

 Logic, Ontology, and Ockham's Christology
Now one suggestion at least intimated in the quoted passage is that the resulting nominalistic ontology is, because of its exclusion of common natures, too impoverished to permit a satisfactory solution to various puzzles generated by the dogma of the Incarnation.
One important question in the Christological cases, as in the more mundane mereological examples, is whether hearers are in general likely to be misled by an unqualified assertion.
We may safely conclude, then, that Geach has failed to show that Ockham is led to the doorstep of Christological heresy by his adherence to the two-name theory of predication.

 A FOCUSED CHRISTOLOGICAL READING OF MARK 8:22-9:13 Trinity Journal - Find Articles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
What I propose in this article is that the three episodes of Mark 8:22-9:13 should be read inter-textually with each other so as to begin offering a resolution to the christological question of Mark's gospel, "Who then is this?" (Mark 4:41).
Rather than read 8:22-26 primarily in terms of discipleship, as is often the case, I would argue that this miracle episode should equally be read in terms of Christology, specifically Jesus' revelatory role.
Recognizing that space prohibits a full-blown treatment of the miracle episodes in Mark's gospel, the following general observations may be made.

 bible.org: The Christological School of Interpretation
The writings of Paul (particularly 1 Corinthians) were a great influence on the Christological school.
If the metaphor of the rock did not refer to a negative category of ‘hard’ rocks, it had to be read christologically.
Therefore, Peter served as a great prototype for the Church because in many ways, he was representative of the everyday Christian: sometimes he is strong (confessing that Jesus is the Christ); at other times he is weak (rebuking Jesus about his imminent death).
