L605 Fall 2019 Exploring Three Biblical Narratives
Mondays, 2:15–3:40, Oct. 21–Nov. 4
Three sessions
Instructor: Steve Goldman  
  • Oct. 21: Reaching for Perfected Love. We often use the term “love” to describe feelings about a wide range of disparate things. We often say that we love baseball, our family, beach vacations, ice cream, and so on. In this course, we will explore what the Bible says about the meaning of love and how it often differs with many common understandings.
  • Oct. 28: The Resurrection of the Dead. The Hebrew scriptures and New Testament speak of the resurrection of the dead and a day of judgment. But do all the different writers concur on when and how it occurs and what it means? In this course, this critical matter, which is often a source of controversy and disagreement among those who consider the Bible a sacred text, will be examined.              
  • Nov. 4: The Role and Person of Mary, Mother of Jesus. Questions to be addressed are: Immaculate Conception? Mother of God; Mother of Christ; Our Mother? Virgin birth? Intercessor? Assumed into heaven?
