At the opening of the sixth century, large segments of the Roman Empire had fallen to barbarian warlords. The Churches of Rome and Constantinople were locked in a schism rooted in different attitudes towards the decrees and definitions of the Fourth Ecumenical council held at Chalcedon in 451. The emperor Justinian (527-565) dreamed of reunifying and restoring the Empire; but to accomplish this he needed a unified Church. Before Justinian ascended the throne the schism between Rome and Constantinople had been healed, largely due to Justinian's influence, but a significant segment of the Eastern population (dubbed monophysites) would not accept the union and the imperial church remained divided.

Understanding the Person of Christ affects our understanding of all Christian theology. All ten contributors to this volume share a commitment to the orthodox theological tradition in Christology as expressed in the creedal heritage of the Christian church, and seek to explicate the continuing coherence and importance of that theological tradition. The book's ten essays cover such topics as prolegomena to Christology, the incarnation, the person and nature of Christ, the communicatio idiomatum, the baptism of Christ, the redemptive work of Christ, the ascended Christ, and New Testament Christology, and offers critical engagements with such diverse theologians as John Calvin, Charles Williams and John Zizioulas. The contributors, all leading academics, include: John Webster, Richard Burridge, Robert Jenson, Stephen Holmes, Douglas Farrow, Brian Horne, Murray, Douglas Knight, Sandra Fach, Christoph Schwoebel.

A thoroughly revised and expanded edition of this classic work to complete John McIntyre's trilogy in Christian doctrine: soteriology, pneumatology and Christology.McIntyre analyses the three classic christological formulations: the two-nature model with divine and human natures uniting in Jesus Christ; the psychological model, derived from the chalcedonian understanding of the humanity of Christ, and from a strong devotional desire to know his mind; and the revelation model, which has dominated western Christology for most of the twentieth-century.

Preaching's Preacher's Guide to the Best Bible Reference for 2014 (Theology) From the earliest pages of the Old Testament, the person of Jesus Christ is the key to the biblical story of God's unfolding plan to glorify himself in the salvation of the human race from sin, misery and death. As the plot gathers pace, the picture comes into greater focus, until eventually all points to one person. He is identified by angels, by John the Baptist, by the apostles and—above all—by his incarnation, life and works, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension. He is Jesus Christ, the Deliverer and Savior foretold and promised throughout. Robert Letham's purpose is to show how the Bible, progressively and in ever-greater detail, speaks to us of its central figure, Jesus Christ. With clarity and conviction, he expounds a range of key Old and New Testament texts from Genesis to Revelation and investigates the main scriptural themes, focusing on the narrative that traces the emergence of God's plan. In doing so, he stands with the Christian church down the ages in affirming that this is the key to understanding what the Bible, in its essential unity, is all about.

What may happen when Christians take doctrine seriously? One possible answer is that the shape of churchly life "on the ground" can be significantly altered. This pioneering study is both an account of the doctrine of the person of Christ as it has been expounded by the theologians of historic English and Welsh Nonconformity, and an attempt to show that while many Nonconformists held classical orthodox views of the doctrine between 1600 and 2000, others advocated alternative understandings of Christ's person; hence the evolution of the ecclesial landscape as we have come to know it. The traditions here under review are those of Old Dissent: the Congregationalists, Baptists, Presbyterians and their Unitarian heirs; and the Calvinistic and Arminian Methodist bodies that owe their origin to the Evangelical Revival of the eighteenth century.
