"Who Do You Say That I Am?"  Why the Humanity of Jesus Matters
April 4-5, 2019
Our existence is a bodily existence.  Because we experience the world and one another through our bodies, a first principle of historic Christianity has been that, in order that God may redeem all of our existence, Jesus assumed our humanity in its fullness. 
Yet, in our discussions about Jesus’s person and work, and our relationship with the triune God, Christians have sometimes presented Christianity as a religion concerned exclusively with the afterlife, neglecting the importance of present realities. 
In this conference we invite you to explore with us why the humanity of Jesus is central to the Christian understanding of salvation. Over the span of two days we will explore how the reality of the Incarnation challenges and redeems our broken social structures, including racial and ethnic divisions, economic systems, and sexuality.
Speakers:
Lynn Cohick, Denver Theological Seminary
Brian Daley, University of Notre Dame
Beth Felker Jones, Wheaton College
Robin Jensen, University of Notre Dame
Esau McGaulley, Northeastern Seminary
Amy Peeler, Wheaton College
