Christ's manhood is a problem central to Christology. Professor Knox considers the several attitudes towards Christ's humanity adopted by the Early Church. In so doing, he outlines and clarifies contemporary understanding of the significance of Christ himself.
Professor Knox proposes and defends a method of understanding the structure of New Testament Christology as a whole, whereby a pattern of development is discerned, and discusses ways in which modern Christians should consider the humanity of Christ. By this reasoning the meaning and relevance of the pattern of Christology outlined in the first part is continued up to the present day.
This clear account of a complex subject is designed both for the scholar and the thoughtful layman.
