In this volume the person and activity of Jesus is presented from the perspective of different theological disciplines. The background of Jesus' activity in Old Testament writings is considered as is the relationship of his earthly career and the emergence of Christian faith. Developments in church history, caused by the earliest accounts of Jesus' life and teaching, are outlined. From a systematic viewpoint the new relationship to God, effected by Jesus Christ, is reflected on. The contribution from practical theology looks at forms of adaption of Jesus' person and teaching in ecclesiastical and social contexts. Finally, the role of Jesus in other religions is considered. Thus the volume presents the person of Jesus Christ as the centre of Christian faith according to the current status of research and does so in a manner which makes him accessible also for those not accustomed to theological terminology and discourse.
