This module engages students on what Jesus of Nazareth revealed about the nature of God and the kingdom of God. We will approach the self-revelation of God in Christ from below (biblical studies – Simply Jesus) and above (systematic theology – A More Christlike God), using the core texts and Bible as our guide. We will integrate these findings to reconsider God’s nature and kingdom as kenotic and cruciform, ruled by divine and human consent and participation. We will apply these themes to the practical ministry, such as healing people’s image of God and how we share a ‘more beautiful gospel.
