Theological debate, Christianity
Theological debate has always been an inherent part of the Christian tradition. Indeed, Christianity as a distinct religious tradition grew out of such debate, as the first followers of the risen Christ argued with their fellow Jews about the nature of God's redemption of humanity and the role of Jesus of Nazareth in that redemption. Since then, Christians over the last two millennia have continually tried to define these two central issues, in an effort to understand and explain the characteristics of God, the work of Jesus Christ, and the significance of this for his church. Needless to say, Christians have not always arrived at identical conclusions concerning these issues,and bitter debates and divisions have ensued.
