THEO 64110 Theology of Revelation: Jesus in Scripture and Tradition
God Speaks to us through the Word in Scripture and Tradition. This course intends (1) to provide a deeper knowledge of the Word as He conveys Himself through these two "Streams" of Revelation and (2) to give students the skills necessary to lead others (and themselves) in the ongoing task of theology -- of, that is, faith seeking understanding. In particular, we will study (1) the relation of natural knowledge and divine revelation; (2) the "streams" of revelation that are Scripture and Tradition; (3) the relation between these two and the means of interpreting them; and (4) the salient content of this revelation as it is communicated in the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the first several centuries of the Catholic Tradition.
This is a core course.
THEO 64410 Nuptial Mystery
Pope Francis in his Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitia, has addressed the need for a renewal of marriage formation. This course explores the nature of the sacrament of marriage with an eye toward the renewal of catechetical, liturgical, and pastoral formation around the sacrament of marriage. The course is organized in three parts: A Mystery to Be Believed, A Mystery to Be Celebrated, and A Mystery to Be Lived. Students will read major texts in the history of marriage and family (including magisterial documents), as well as contemporary works on sacramental theology dealing with the uniqueness of marriage as an ecclesial sacrament. The course will deal with major questions related to marriage today including family life and human sexuality in a liturgical key. This class is not a course in the study of Christian ethics but is instead a sacramental and pastoral course on marriage for pastoral leaders.
