THEO 8817 Christ in the New Testament (Fall: 3 )
This seminar studies the diverse Christological patterns in the New Testament: Jesus as embodiment of Wisdom in sayings and hymns (John); as fulfillment of messianic hopes (Matthew); as crucified and resurrected redeemer (Paul), and as exalted in heaven (Rev). Both Jewish elements in these patterns and their reformulation in second and third century Christianity (Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Valentinians and Origen) will be discussed. The final section of the seminar will discuss the use of these studies in Catholic systematics (Schillebeeckx, Gutierrez, Schussler-Fiorenza, Johnson and Benedict XVI).
