Jessica’s PhD research focuses on exploring Paul’s relational Christology in 2 Corinthians 3-5. This research will engage Paul’s participatory theology through the second person hermeneutic and functional dualisms that occur in these chapters. Paul’s understanding of the person is both embedded and embodied to their surroundings, and this project will seek to argue how relational Christology is the best framework to understand this.
