Jesus Christ: Icon of God

Dive into Christology, the study of the person and work of Jesus Christ! A biblical understanding of Jesus Christ is crucial and this course will take you through a deep study of the Second Person of the Trinity.

Total classes: 8

Prerequisite: None

Suggested grade level: 11th to 12th

Suggested credit: 3/4 semester Theology (+ additional reading suggestions for full credit opportunity)

Special Notes: This course includes a writing component.


Welcome to Mr. Creavey’s 8-session Christology course! The purpose of this course is to introduce students to Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity and the living Word of God, on a more thorough and intimate level. To do so, we will explore Jesus, his person and mission, through some of the most key images he used to describe himself in Scripture. As they come to a clearer image of who Jesus is, and perhaps equally important, who he is not, students will hopefully develop a better understanding of who Our Lord is calling them to be in the Church and in the world.

Homework & Assessments: Students should expect to read approximately 20-30 pages per week (course texts as well as web-based readings) and they may occasionally be required to access brief online video and/or audio material. Prior to some class sessions, students will be expected to view a pre-recorded 30-40 min. lecture from the instructor relating to the upcoming class session topic. 75% of the student’s grade will come from three short, objective, online quizzes covering material from vocabulary and class lectures. The remaining 25% will come from an essay exploring your thoughts on/reactions to Dr. Pitre’s book The Case for Jesus. More details on homework and grading will be provided during the first class.
