Length of the Answer: About three to four pages double-spaced in length. The answer should have an introductory and concluding paragraph. The introduction should begin with an introductory paragraph providing an abstract of what you are about to say. This should begin with your thesis statement (= your main point) on the subject. The essay should also have a concluding paragraph that summarizes what you have just said. These two paragraphs will take up most of a page. The main body of the answer should make seven to nine main points on the topic; in other words, it will have seven to nine paragraphs. A paragraph is generally about half a page double-spaced.
Provide Your Opinion: Naturally, most of your essay will be summarizing and showing me that you have understood what was taught in class, but you also need to provide your own opinion. Ex.: “I think the New Testament displays a low Christology”.
Each topic has a main question with sub-questions that should be addressed. Do not answer each
of the sub-questions individually, but rather incorporate everything into a seamless essay.
Question: What sort of Christology does the New Testament present?
a. What were the messianic expectations in Judaism of the time?
i. What messiahs were expected?
b. What sort of Christological understanding did Jesus have of himself?
i. Did Jesus teach he was the Messiah?
c. When did the disciples understand he was the Messiah?
i. If so, which Messiah?
d. Does Jesus fulfil Jewish Christological expectations?
e. Is Christian Christology low or high?
i. Was Jesus before his death seen as more man or God?
ii. How does this differ from his after-death manifestation?
f. Does the understanding of Jesus as Messiah change over time? If so, how?
g. In the above be sure to discuss the Christology of Paul, the synoptic gospels
(Mark, Luke, and Matthew), John, and Hebrews, and whether they differ.
P.S: Things to talk about in regards to the books: High/Low Christology. Below I attach a Word file which is already formatted. Do not change the formatting of the document. You have to write an essay inside this Word file.
