Seminar in Christian Origins

Seminar in Christian Origins: Defining Jesus WT
Participants in this seminar will explore the diversity of early Christianity by examining the multiple ways its constituent groups defined Jesus of Nazareth. In addition to the works of the New Testament (gospels, letters, and Revelation), we will read early Gnostic literature, the second century apologists, creeds (e. g. Nicene and Chalcedonian), episcopal letters, and theological treatises arguing the interpretation of the creeds. We will also examine hymns, liturgies, and works of art. Recent secondary literature will be used to supplement primary sources. 3 hr. sem.
