Spirit Christology is just one of several attempts to reframe the doctrinal truths of Chalcedon according to contemporary modes of thought and expression. In this paper, I provide a brief description of the historical, intellectual, and theological background to the recent interest in Chalcedon, discuss the epistemological and methodological presuppositions of Spirit Christology by way of demonstrating their impact on the question of Jesus’ divinity, the nature of his salvific work, and several of the major themes of his life and death, and close with a critical assessment of Spirit Christology’s claim to be a more suitable way of articulating the mystery of Jesus.
