  Christology
The Incarnation of Christ (Christology) is a doctrine which has been a subject of controversy at various times in church history.
Sixteenth-century Anabaptist and Mennonite Christologies were generally compatible with orthodox understandings in the sense that they affirmed both the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ and salvation through his atoning death on the cross.
Christology therefore remains at the center of both doctrinal and ethical, as well as soteriological and ecclesiological discussion and debate, both among Mennonites and between Mennonite and other Christians.

This Christology, if it has to take into account the limits of the humanity [L has humanitatis, which is missing in F] of "Jesus of Nazareth," has to acknowledge in him at the same time "the Christ of faith," fully revealed by his resurrection in the light of the Holy Spirit.
Various Christologies in the New Testament, as well as the definitions of councils--in which are repeated, in an "auxiliary language," things already contained in Scripture have indicated the route along which theological [L has theologica, which F omits] speculation can proceed, without exactly demasking the mystery itself.
Still other Christologies are found in the Epistle to the Hebrews, in 1 Peter, in the Book of Revelation, in the Letters of James and Jude, and in 2 Peter, although they do not have the same amount of development in such writings.

 Christology
Hence a three stage Christology emerges: the preexistent wisdom or Logos (Word), who was the agent of creation and of general revelation and also of the special revelation of Israel, becomes incarnate in the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth, and then in the resurrection and exaltation returns to heaven (Php.
In Lutheran Christology there was a further important development, the attributes of the humanity of Jesus being regarded as limiting those of his deity, according to the "kenotic" theory of Thomasius.
Our Christology must indeed indicate the direction in which we seek to solve all theological problems where we are dealing with the relation of a human event or reality to the grace of God in Christ.

 Definition
At the risk of being too explicit, Christology is a sub topic of Soteriology (the doctrine of salvation through the work of Christ and the Holy Spirit).
Though we might expect Soteriology to be a sub topic of Christology, quite the opposite is the case since God had, from eternity, ordained the redemption of mankind.
The task of Christology is to offer rational support for belief in the divinity of Jesus, for it is this which is disputed in the world today.

 Christology
Christology is that part of Christian theology that studies and defines who Jesus Christ is. It is generally less concerned with the minor details of his life; rather it deals with who he was, and the major events of his life (his birth, death, and resurrection).
Christology may also cover questions concerning the Trinity, and what if anything Christ accomplished for the rest of humanity.
The Adoptionist view is that Christ was born a man only, but became God's son by adoption when he was baptized in the Jordan.

 Crosscurrents --A Reflection on the Overall Christology...
The one overriding impression gained from the analysis of Ellen White's Christology is the great freedom in which she brings together different metaphors, thought-forms and models in presenting the person and work of Christ, sometimes even within the same passage.
Another positive contribution arising from Ellen White's Christology was her willingness to hold together a presentation of Christ's active use of His divine attributes with the full functioning of His genuine humanity.
Another contribution emerging from this study which is of considerable importance for the future of Adventist Christology, is Heppenstall's great emphasis on the priority of the objective and historical salvation wrought in the life, death and resurrection of Christ, over against the subjective, existential realization of such salvation in the life of the believer.

 Mark's Christology
Christology is a very important -- if not the most important -- element in the Gospel According to Mark.
Perrin felt that Mark sought to "teach the Christians of his day a true Christology in place of the false Christology that he felt they were in danger of accepting." Kelber agrees in principle with his teacher but feels, as does Weeden, that the false Christology was already established in Mark's community.
Here, Mark's Christology and its implications are embodied in an unforgettable scene in which Mark's narrative style of presenting theology reaches its dramatic height.

 Scholastic Lutheran Christology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Scholastic Lutheran Christology studies Jesus Christ in theology of Lutheran Orthodoxy.
On the general basis of the Chalcedonian christology, and following the indications of the Scriptures as the only rule of faith, the Protestant, especially the Lutheran, scholastics, at the close of the sixteenth, and during the seventeenth, century, built some additional features, and developed new aspects of Christ's person.
The propelling cause was the Lutheran doctrine of the real presence or omnipresence of Christ's body in the Lord's Supper, and the controversies growing out of it with the Zwinglians and Calvinists, and among the Lutherans themselves.

Philippians 2:5-8 is perhaps the best summary of Christology: "Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

 Theology Today - Vol 38, No. 2 - July 1981 - TABLETALK - Schillebeeckx's Christology
I think that one of the reasons why both readers and critics have a problem with the relationship between soteriology and Christology in Schillebeeckx is because he is delaying the necessary explanation of their linkage, which he sees as pneumatological, until he treats it in his third volume.
The earliest form of this kerygma is found in the "Q tradition." The passage from a parousia kerygma to a resurrection Christology is a movement from concentration on the kingdom to a concentration on the person of Jesus.
In developing the resurrection moment in his genetic evolution of Christology, Schillebeeckx is true to the importance which he attaches to experience and is anxious to keep together the disciples' experience of Jesus' presence in their midst and what happened to Jesus himself-his rising from the dead.

 Fr. Hardon Archives - Christology
From the dawn of Christianity, the apostles and first leaders of the Church were at pains to verify the origins of their faith and how radically, therefore, the Christian religion differs from the mythology of pagan Greece and Rome.

In the interim the science of Christology had not substantially grown beyond what it was at the end of the patristic age.
