From the Gospel to the Gospels (NT I)

WYB1501HS L6101 SESSION: Summer 2014 INSTRUCTOR(S):

COLLEGE: Wycliffe College SCHEDULE: Online

CREDITS: One Credit

An introduction to the four Gospels in their social, historical and theological settings. Using a "socio-literary" approach, we will study the Gospels within a two-dimensional framework, both centred on what the early Christians called the "gospel" or "Kerygma." One dimension has to do with social history the origin and development of Christianity as a distinct social entity, from its foundations in the ministry of Jesus and the Easter experience, through its emergence as a Jewish renewal movement, and on to its development into a separate, largely Gentile, institutionalized religion. The second dimension has to do with literature the process by which the Gospels came to be written, their literary form and texture, and their character as narrative versions of the "gospel." Weekly online lectures, assigned analysis/reflection papers, discussion board postings.

COLLEGE: St. Michael's College SCHEDULE: TBA TIME: TBA to TBA

CREDITS: One Credit

This course will study some selections from Augustine on the dynamic process of discovering and communicating religious truths. Students will study the ordering of truth, divine pedagogy, divine illumination and the structure of meaning in Augustine. Through a reading and interpretation of selected texts from Augustine, students will learn how to embrace and communicate religious truths in love. They will be led to appreciate that teaching and learning while being processes in self-discovery and self- development are communal, ecclesial, and self-transcending. The overall goal of this course is to lead students to appreciate how teaching and learning integrate different and ongoing levels of meaning, transformations and conversion in the loving embrace of truth and wisdom. The relationship between the order of discovery, the order of presentation and the hermeneutic of trust in the dynamic process of Christian education especially in Augustine's On Christian Teaching will also be considered. Teaching methods: Weekly readings from selected texts, class discussion, and tutorials Means of evaluation: Class participation: 10%; Class presentation of a reflection paper: 30%; Book/Article Review: 20%; Final Integrative Paper: 40%
