Chapter Summary

This index is the list of terms and concepts for the development of Christology. Two perspectives on the development of Christology in the first 100 years currently strive for preeminence. On the one hand, a long-lived, widespread view of christological development understands it as a logically backward process. On the other hand, the major reservations about such an evolutionary view have come from those who want to see what is late in the model just described pushed much earlier. One approach, working from the titles ascribed to Jesus, associates the parousia Christology with Palestinian Jewish Christianity, the exaltation Christology with a miraculous conception with Hellenistic Jewish Christianity, and the pre-existence Christology with pre-Pauline gentile Christianity.

Keywords:Christology; Jewish Christianity
