REVELATION-FAITH (3 units)
Joaquin Yap, DPhil
WF 9:00-10:15 am
Fundamental theology endeavors to study the foundational reality of Christianity and theology, which is the revelation of God in Jesus Christ. This revelation seeks a response of faith from the human addressee.
Part I begins with an overview of the treatise on revelation, and examines successively: revelation as occurrence; revelation as doctrinal and historical; revelation as mystery; credibility and the signs of revelation.
Part II considers the biblical foundation of the profoundly human experience of religious faith. This is followed by a rather rapid survey of faith in the history of dogma and theology. The course ends with a theological reflection on the paradoxes of faith.
