Marc Cortez – Meet the Speakers of Exploring Personhood

Post Icon

What does it mean to be human? Academic disciplines answer this question in increasingly different ways. Yet how we define a human being affects every aspect of our world.

Join us as we advance the conversation at Exploring Personhood, a Faith + Culture Forum presented by the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary on Feb. 10-11, 2022.

Meet Marc Cortez

Marc Cortez is Professor of Theology at Wheaton College. His teaching and writing focus primarily on the nature of the human person and how Jesus informs our understanding of humanity. He is the author of several books in theological anthropology including Christological Anthropology in Historical Perspective, ReSourcing Theological Anthropology: A Constructive Account of Humanity in the Light of Christ, and  Theological Anthropology: A Guide for the Perplexed.

Lecture Topic

The Image of God and Human Embodiment 

In many views of the imago Dei, it becomes difficult to see why embodiment is important for being human. Instead, they often imply that the body is merely instrumental and maybe even unnecessary for humanity. A more adequate understanding of the imago Dei will explain why the body is fundamentally significant for human existence and flourishing.
