                    Abstract

                    This thesis develops a relevant and contextual Christology for contemporary Nigeria against the backdrop of the lingering crises of peace and mutuality, and the dominant form of Christology – “solution-oriented Christology – a Christology that dwells upon Christ’s divine power to liberate from life concerns.
                    It addresses the problem of peace and mutuality in Nigeria using a Christological framework. The thesis proposes two Christological paradigms for peace and mutuality: the Reign of God and reconciliation which can be articulated in the form of prophetic dialogue and prophetic Christology.
                    The thesis argues that given the existing religious consciousness of the Nigerian people, these Christological paradigms can function as models for the mission of Nigerian Christianity in the twenty-first century. When articulated, the paradigms may foster the quest for peace, mutuality, and social transformation in Nigeria. This thesis encapsulates a Christian option for the solution to the escalating problem of peace and mutuality in Nigeria.
