THEO 363 - Gospels

The Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) offer striking portraits of Jesus' vocation and saving death, providing insight into Jesus' ministry to the marginal and the implications of Jesus' parables and calls for transformation in view of the coming of the kingdom of God. The Gospel of John adds depth to the portrait of Jesus as divine, making claims that are the basis for Christian understandings of the Trinity. A critical treatment of the historical context and literary genres of the Gospels will inform careful exegesis, including comparison and contrast of the sources and extra-biblical texts and material culture. Prerequisite: THEO 224, or consent of instructor.
