Instructor: To Be Determined
It has been observed that Lutheran theologians tend to grow weary of systematic studies dealing with the nature and attributes of God, but come alive with renewed energy when they turn their attention to Christology and Soteriology. We get that. The Person and Work of Jesus is central to all of Scripture and the key to understanding so much of Christian history in matters of teaching and practice. In this course we will not neglect basic Christology (his person, offices, work) but will especially seek to identify current issues and emphases that have surfaced in the religious world, examine attempts to improve (or replace) traditional terminology, and make special effort to show how our view of Christ will invariably impact our life – and enrich our Christian ministries.
