Semester 1 unit | Jesus Christ at the Margins

This advanced unit seeks to critically examine Jesus Christ’s engagement with the people who were categorized as at the social margins. Through a survey of ‘Jesus Christ and margins’ in the biblical and patristic works, the unit will determine how this has been appropriated by contemporary theologians to articulate a contextual Christology. By tracing this perspective from the Gospels, ante-Nicaean and post-Nicaean teachers, and modern theologians, this unit seeks to understand the missional significance of conceiving Christology through the life of vulnerable communities.

  • Hi St A. I am a Pilgrim College student. I would love to do a unit like this. It fits in with my serious interest in what way Jesus is a symbol/icon of God in our shared humanity.
    Also I would love to experience something of that ancient Coptic flavour.
    At 71 and part time I am not in a hurry. I am doing a systematic theology unit this semester but maybe some other time.
    Cheers, Ivan.
