Welcome to our 5-week online course on the New Testament Gospels with Dr. Jordan Henderson! This course will explore the figure of Jesus Christ as He is depicted in each of the four canonical gospels. Each of the first four weeks will focus on the presentation of Jesus in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John respectively. In our final class, we will discuss the Church’s Christological understanding of Jesus and Trinitarian understanding of God, as defined in the Council of Nicea, in light of our reading of the Gospels. We will also discuss the so-called “Quest for the Historical Jesus” in this final class.
We will send out a Streamyard link a few days before the first class. The class will meet on the following dates: 2/20/2024, 2/27/2024, 3/5/2024, 3/12/2024, and 3/14/2024. All classes will meet at 7pm Eastern. Recordings of each class will also be made available to anyone who audits the course.
