TMST 8056 Exploring Salvation (Fall: 3 )
For Christians, salvation remains at once something evident... and a question. Christianity is a religion of salvation, Christ is the Savior, but what does it mean to be saved? and how are we saved? In this course, we will explore the richness of the Christian notion of salvation: the various images of Christ as Savior (rooted in the New Testament), the ‘boundaries’ and parameters of salvation, the tension between the Incarnation and the Cross, the role of the Trinity in salvation, as well as the place of a human response to the salvific offer from God.
