This course focuses on the question Jesus posed to his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” Students will use historical, literary and theological methods to explore the Gospels and other writings of the Early Church to formulate their answer to this question. As such, the course is designed to help the student explore the New Testament from a non-literal, historical-critical perspective. Special attention to the practical meaning of living the Gospel message will also be addressed, in particular Jesus’ call to build the Kingdom of God.
