Christians believe that Jesus Christ was God-incarnate; thus Jesus was truly God and truly human. However, Christians approach this belief in more than one way. Some writers emphasise the divinity of Jesus, others emphasise the humanity whilst still others strive to maintain a balance. When people emphasise Christ's divinity, sometimes to the expense of His humanity, this is termed "High Christology" (Christology being the study of Christ). People who stress the divinity of Christ will lay emphasis on (a) miracles (b) Jesus' union with the will of His Father (c) the Gospel account of John, which has a high Christological approach. Conversely, when Christians emphasise Christ's humanity this is termed "Low Christology". Such people will stress (a) Christ's suffering (b) His struggles (c) the Gospel accounts of Mark and Luke.

What type of Christology that stands out while Jesus in on the cross?

If 'Christology' is the story and doctrine of Christ, I would say that the Christology of Christ on the Cross is the ultimate Christology; for at that time Jesus Christ fulfilled his whole mission by offering himself for all our sins - "The Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world." And this was confirmed 3 days later when he rose from the dead.
