Manuel Francisco, SJ - John Yocum, DPhil
WF 9:00-10:15 am
Part I: Surveys the history of theology of revelation; analyzes revelation as event (words) and deeds of God in history), the content of revelation (historical, doctrinal, and mystery) and the transmission of revelation (through Scriptures and Tradition); studies the signs of revelation, the method of a biblical apologetic, and the faith of the Church concerning Jesus as the definitive revelation of God.
Part II: Studies the notion of faith according to the OT and the NT and to important theologians and Church councils; analyzes the nature and properties of faith, the object and content of faith, the interaction of divine grace and human freedom in the act of faith, the effect and responsibilities of faith, and the eschatological dimension of ecclesial faith.
