From the Gospel to the Gospels (NT I)

WYB1501HF L9101 SESSION: Fall 2020 INSTRUCTOR(S): Sider-Hamilton, Catherine

COLLEGE: Wycliffe College SCHEDULE: Thu Online TIME: 10:00 to 12:00

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."

Contexts are always shaped by numerous historical and social forces, which we come to embody in ways related to our particular social locations. In the first half of this course, we learn how to do spiritual/vocational reflection on the self-in-context. In the second half of the course, we nurture these capacities by using them in relation to one context in which we all share: colonial Canada in the wake of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). Exploring how to be vocationally responsible in light of this context, we will develop analytic skills transferable to multiple other contexts too.
