O homem a imagem de Cristo na relação com o Pai. Uma leitura teológica em Adolphe Gesché

  • Dionísio Cardoso Joaquim Leite (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Throughout the history of Christianity, christians have always understood life as based on his relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Hence Peter’s statement, “To whom shall we go, Lord? You have the word of eternal life” (John 6:68). Thus, the figure of Jesus appears as the guiding line that permeates all humanity. Man finds his identity from Jesus. However, to make this journey with some precision, we have taken the work of Adolphe Gesché as a reference, who states that humanity is what God means of it. Now, with this investigation, our objective is to raise humanity's awareness to find meaning in their lives so far there are able to establish a relationship with God. Such meaning requires the ability to find the charm and beauty of life as a gift offered to each Man by God himself, thus calling him to enjoy it from the theological perspective. Created in the image and likeness of God, we are called to contemplate his love and to perceive Jesus as the light of the world.
