Jesus Christ

Origin of the Name of Jesus
In this article, we shall consider the two words — "Jesus" and "Christ" — which compose the Sacred Name.

The Holy Name of Jesus
We give honour to the Name of Jesus, because it reminds us of all the blessings we receive through our Holy Redeemer.

Early Historical Documents Concerning Jesus Christ
In this article, we discuss the ancient historical documents — pagan, Jewish, and Christian — referring to Christ's life and work.

Chronology of the Life of Christ
In this article, we shall endeavour to establish the absolute and relative chronology of our Lord's life.

The Character of Jesus Christ
Here we consider the character of Jesus as manifested first in His relation to men, then in His relation to God.

The Mystery of the Incarnation
The Incarnation is the mystery and dogma of the Word made Flesh.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Resurrection is the rising again from the dead, the resumption of life. In this article, we shall treat of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, including its characteristics and importance.

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Devotion to the Sacred Heart is but a special form of devotion to Jesus.

Christology
Christology is that part of theology which deals with Our Lord Jesus Christ. In its full extent it comprises the doctrines concerning both the person of Christ and His works; but in the present article we shall limit ourselves to a consideration of the person of Christ.
