Is it possible to know Jesus Christ without loving him? This course introduces students to the kinds of questions that arise concerning the person, life, work, significance and self-understanding of Jesus Christ. It covers the Jesus tradition in the New Testament, explores the origin of Christology in the life experience of the Apostles, unpacks the meaning of the “Kerygma” and delves into how God prepared all humanity to understand and welcome his Son through the history of the people of Israel.
