Abstract: Jesus is referred to as the Cosmic Christ because he is the centre of all created realities. As the Cosmic Christ, he had a pre-existence before the world was created. And in human history, he existed and identified himself with this physical world of human existence. As a person with a human nature, Jesus the Cosmic Christ also had a divine nature. After his death he promised to be with his disciples till the end of time. Jesus the Cosmic Christ has an eternal existence. All things were also created through him and all human beings were created in his image. Jesus the Cosmic Christ lives in every human being. The ecology of the human person therefore reveals that all human beings are created by God in this world of human existence with the spiritual and physical dignity of the children of God. The Theology of Jesus the Cosmic Christ was systematically developed in the 20th Century by notable theologians‘ like Teilhard de Chardin and Karl Rahner. The Johannine prologue (John l:l-I8) and the Pauline Christological hymns of Ephesians 1:3-l0, Philippians 2:5- 12 and Colossians 1:15-20 are the basic foundations that provide the scriptural bases for this theology. Thus, using the thematic method of biblical theology, this paper examines the theology of Jesus the Cosmic Christ and how he can restore the ecology of the human person. There is need. therefore, for every human being created in the image of God to accept Jesus and then permit him to work in his or her life for the restoration of the ecology of the human person.
