28 Suggested Readings on Christology

Here are some my picks on the topic of Christology. The word “Christology” comes from two Greek words meaning “Christ / Messiah” and “word” – which combine to mean “the study of Christ.”  There are numerous important questions that Christology answers such as  “What Does it Mean to say Jesus is the Son of God?” or “How did the early followers of Jesus see his divinity?”
