Unit rationale, description and aim

This unit focuses on the modern quest for the historical Jesus as well as the development of early Christian responses to the identity and mission of Jesus. Students will study Jesus as a Jew in his first century Palestinian environment, and explore portraits of him found in the canonical Gospels. They will also examine other New Testament texts in order to determine the variety of portraits of Jesus in the Christian tradition and to understand the development of Christology in the first century.
