In this unit students will consider the significance of Jesus Christ in today's cultural context. The unit begins with the New Testament witness to Jesus, his work and mission, and then investigates the emergence of Christological confessions and creeds in the early Church. Some contemporary theological readings of these insights are then examined.
A range of assessment procedures will be used to meet the unit learning outcomes and develop graduate attributes consistent with University assessment requirements. Such procedures may include, but are not limited to: essays, reports, examinations, student presentations, case studies and online interactive student performance tasks.
