Dr Marc Cortez

Visiting Lecturer for the postgraduate course, Special Topic (Theology): Being Human 

 

Dr Marc Cortez Ph.D. is Associate Professor of Theology and Doctoral Supervisor at Wheaton College in Illinois, USA.

His study specialties include: theology, church history, ministry, biblical studies, Greek and pop culture.

Marc’s research interests revolve largely around what it means to be human.

“I think that humans are fascinatingly weird creatures who raise all kinds of complex questions, so I enjoy studying pretty much anything that has to do with human persons. More specifically, though, much of my research focuses on the significance of Christology for understanding humans in general. In other words, what does it really mean to say that Jesus reveals what it means to be truly human? And what difference does that make for how we understand specific issues like the image of God, embodiment, free will, sexuality, race, and more.”

His published books include Theological Anthropology: A Guide for the Perplexed and Christological Anthropology In Historical Perspective: Ancient and Contemporary Approaches to Theological Anthropology
