THRS 2060 - Perspectives on Jesus

5 credit hours
This course explores Jesus’ identity and his meaning for the people of his day as well as in the present. We will try to understand what drew people to Jesus and why he has continued to inspire so many even today. To do this, we will begin with the Christology of the New Testament but will move into how Jesus’ identity and significance are interpreted in more recent theological reflection and in artistic representations. We will give attention to the influences of culture and gender on how people interpret Jesus’ identity and meaning and consider the social justice implications of these views. CT
