Definition: Christology
Area of theology dealing with the person of Christ. Treats such topics as the relation between Christ's human and divine natures, and the meaning of his sacrificial death (atonement). The vast majority of Christological doctrine was developed in the period leading up to the Council of Nicea in 325.

Christology is the branch of Christian theology that seeks to answer the question, "Who is Jesus Christ?" from a theological perspective.

Today, most Christian denominations agree that Jesus Christ was a real human being, the Messiah predicted by the Jews, the Son of God, and God made flesh.
