Why did some people want Jesus dead, while others came to honor him as the Christ? What does it mean to say that "he was raised," and how did this belief get started? What about the classical expressions of Jesus' religious significance - "true God of true God, begotten, not made, one in being with the Father," and "one person in two natures"? Where did they come from and what do they mean? Finally, what does belief in Jesus have to do with justice for the poor, the women's movement, concern for the environment, and respect for other world religions? This book introduces the reader to the issues and questions that have given Christology, Christian reflection on Jesus' religious significance, a whole new shape in recent years.
Dr. Loewe focuses on Christology today, especially the religious significance of Jesus for culture and society. By surveying Jesus's life in light of the Easter experience, and by tracing the Christology process--the process whereby Christians seek to capture and communicate in words Jesus's impact--this work grasps current Christian, and especially Catholic, theological reflection on the significance of Jesus.
