First, I outline the core of liberal Christology and suggest some inadequacies. Second, I show how four different elements of the classical doctrine of Christ have their surprising and illuminating place in the urgent task of fashioning a contemporary theology of gender. Third, I conclude that the classical Christology, suitably recast or ‘re-visioned’, is more useful to liberal Christianity than the reductionist Christology it often assumes.
