 Issues | Doctrine of Christ | Introduction

The doctrine of Christ, known as christology can be divided into two parts - the person of Christ and the work of Christ.

The Person of Christ

Christians assert that Jesus of Nazareth was both God and man.

the Word became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1.14) taking the form of a servant, and coming in the likeness of men (Philippians 2.7).

The Work of Christ

Christ fulfilled the Old Testament which always anticipated Him.  He is Prophet, Priest and King.

In the fulness of time God sent His Son to redeem His people so that they might be adopted as children of God.  (see Galatians 4. 4-5)
