Christology 

From the Greek Christos, "Christ," and logia, "doctrine." In Christian theology the word refers to the doctrine of Christ. It can be used in a broad sense to designate the whole body of teaching about Jesus the Christ, including both his person and his work. The traditional scope of Christology, however, is narrower. It covers only an exposition of the person of Christ, usually in terms of the Chalcedonian Definition, a carefully balanced formula designed to express both the full humanity of Jesus of Nazareth and his full divinity as the Son of God.
