Systematic theology is the coherent and systematic presentation of the Christian doctrine, and its content rests on the historical revelation of God in the historical figure of Jesus Christ. By its very nature, systematic theology is a discipline in theology. Systematic theology is the main branch of Christian theology, which draws on scriptures and Church’s tradition for its analysis of the data of the Christian revelation.
