THEO 5350 Sacraments as Prophetic Actions (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course examines the sacraments of the Church in continuity with the prophetic actions performed by Jesus. It begins with a study of the dramatic actions of the Hebrew prophets. It then links the actions with "signs and wonders" that characterized the ministry of Jesus Christ in his proclamation of the Kingdom of God. The sacraments are then presented as liturgical actions that insert us into the Paschal Mystery and that empower and challenge us to anticipate the "new heaven and new earth."
