"Jesus in Scripture and Tradition" is taught by two leading experts in the field.
When Notre Dame theology professors Gary Anderson and John Cavadini decided to put together an online course on Jesus, they wanted to make it interesting and enjoyable to Christians and non-Christians alike.
With “Jesus in Scripture and Tradition,” the two professors set out to create a course that would lead people to an understanding of the the history of the Bible and the Catholic Church, rooted in evidence and fact. The course also encourages students on their spiritual journeys with prompts asking them to reflect on experiences presented in the Bible and share them with others — “to talk about implications of morals and lessons as they might apply in a modern world.”
The course is eight weeks long and is organized around these topics:
Who is Israel? (primary source material: the book of Genesis)
Who is Jesus? (primary source material: the Gospels and the Creeds)
Who is the Church? (primary source material: a selection of post-Biblical Christian writers)
