Thread: One of the major theological tensions within the study of Christology is its connection to soteriology.
-Discuss the proper order of study in approaching the person and work of Christ.
– Does one have a priority over the other?
– How does your answer help you evaluate the numerous inadequate “theories of atonement” that have been suggested over the years?
-Lastly, give a working definition of the atonement theory that seems to rise to the top of the options.

You must only cite the course textbooks.
