This book is a brief Christology overview. Our enquiry is divided into ten chapters. The first four tackle the event of Jesus Christ, by means of the history, the world, the intention and the destiny of Jesus, following the lines of historical and cultural research, with particular reference to the Gospel sources. From the fifth to the ninth chapter, we untangle the historical footpath of faith in Christ, where, within various frames, multiple images of the Son of God take shape. In the last chapter, we deal with a subject that has emerged in recent years, that is to say, the relationship between Jesus and other religious experiences, within the broader framework of the mystery of the Saviour.
