In Christology: The Person and Work of Christ Dr. Lane Tipton maps out the distinctive features of the person and work of Jesus Christ, to help you see more clearly His significance. Dr. Tipton focuses on Christ from a Reformed perspective, beginning with an overview of the person and work of Christ as well as historical developments in Christology. From there, he takes an in-depth look at three main passages—Col 1:15–20, Heb 1:1–4, Phil 2:5–11—to glean authoritative teaching concerning the person and work of Christ. The course concludes by examining Heb 8–9, with an emphasis on Jesus’ role as heavenly high priest. The course will lead you to a deeper and richer understanding of the gospel as you grow in your understanding of the person and work of Jesus Christ
