Saint Vincent Seminary will offer Biblical Christology this summer, from May 16 to June 9. The three-credit course will be held from 6:30 to 9:15 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Brownfield Center.
This course begins with a review of the three stages of the Gospel tradition using the first stage as an opportunity to highlight the major developments in the Quest for the Historical Jesus. Careful consideration is then given to the foundational event of Jesus resurrection including various current approaches to the question, exegesis and evaluation of the Biblical evidence, and solid conclusions consonant with Catholic tradition.
The final portion of the course examines significant Biblical Christologies which represent the original faith response to the central event of the resurrection. Particular attention is given to the Gospels, early Christological Hymns, and Paul. A serious effort is made to appreciate both the diversity and development within the Biblical texts.
