What does a real man look like? What does a real man do? These are questions that many modern men are struggling to answer. The world is ready to provide an endless array of proposed answers, but how the Bible talks about manhood is another matter entirely. This thesis seeks to explore the concept of Christian masculinity and discover what lessons can be learned from Christ’s own earthly life. This thesis starts by showing a small sampling of the issues in society that are calling traditional masculinity into question. Following that there is a discussion of the various ways popular culture defines what it means to be a real man. Finally, there is a look at how psychology and Scripture demonstrate aspects and characteristics of truly healthy masculinity.
