Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” For two millennia, believers have tackled this profound question. Now, you are invited to join one of Catholicism’s top theology professors as you explore this question and edify your faith.

Under the guidance of award-winning Catholic Theological Union professor, Fr. Robin Ryan, CP, you will examine the Christologies of the New Testament. Next, you will look at the intense reflections on Jesus that arose in the first seven centuries of the Church. You will then approach Christology in the thought of medieval theologians like Thomas Aquinas and Protestants like Martin Luther.

As you move into the 20th century, you will look at how the mystery of Christ manifests itself in the work of Karl Rahner and Edward Schillebeeckx. You will then explore the perspectives of the poor and of women. Finally, you will address the understanding of Jesus within an evolutionary view of the universe and the affirmation of Christ as universal Savior in a religiously diverse world.

Praise for Robin Ryan
“For years Robin Ryan has written and taught about Jesus Christ with great clarity, deep insight, and a pastoral heart. He places the treasures of tradition in touch with contemporary questions. Listening to him will reward the hearer with beautiful, challenging understandings of their own.” – Elizabeth A. Johnson, CSJ, Distinguished Professor of Theology, Fordham University
 
 “Robin Ryan is not only a careful and thoughtful scholar. He is a master teacher who makes crystal clear how the Bible and the tradition understand and profess Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ. Perhaps even more important, however, he is a person of faith who will inspire those who encounter him in this series to deeper faith in and commitment to Jesus themselves.” – Stephen Bevans, SVD, Catholic Theological Union
 
“Fr. Robin Ryan’s astute insights and pastoral sensibilities are clearly evident. Always with a hint of humor, Fr. Ryan brings his training as a systematic theologian and the charism of his Passionist community into conversations that matter.” – Sr. Laurie Brink, O.P., Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union
