Barth: Goals for Class

I could study Barth all my life, and still not understand the man. However, here are my two rather modest goals for the upcoming class on Karl Barth:

1) Understand Barth’s unique take on the Gospel, and be able to briefly and succinctly express it, especially in differentiation from Evangelical and Reformed Orthodoxy

2) Understand Barth’s unique Christology, especially his take on the historical Jesus, the Jesus of Scriptures, the second member of the trinity, the Greek “Logos” and John’s “Logos,” etc. I also really want to know what in the world people mean when they say Barth “actualized Chalcedon.”
