THEO 683 New Testament Scriptures 3 sem. hrs.
This course explores the literature and theology of the New Testament: the Gospels and Acts, the Epistles, and the Apocalypse of John. Students will read the New Testament within the historical, cultural and intellectual contexts of Early Judaism and Greco-Roman civilization, with special attention to how the inspired authors interpreted the life, death and resurrection of Jesus within the framework of the Old Testament. Students will integrate their insights with Catholic biblical hermeneutics and the Church’s dogmatic constitution on divine revelation.
