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.
