Theology, like most other things, is subject to changes and transformations. If one has to reflect on the history of theology, several changes surface, such as the liberal protestant theology of the nineteenth century, which challenged dialectical theology, and the Biblical Theology movement of the Second World War, which sought to see Christian life within the context of the intellectual world of the first century. Because theology is a co-operative enterprise, it is often subject to fashion and changes in fashion. Theologians often play an important role in the changes found in theology. They always keep the Church abreast of new theological trends and developments. Among these is the doctrine of the person and work of Christ, which is one of the most absorbing currents of current theology and remains to be a matter of controversy. This chapter discusses the humanity and divinity of Jesus Christ through the concept of resurrection and incarnation. It also discusses the diversity and contemporaries on the resurrection faith and the framework from which the resurrection faith can be measured and defined.
