Course description: “*Christ’s kenosis and appointment of apostles, evangelists, pastors, or teachers (Eph 4:7-11)] illuminates the change in Christ’s life from being formed by history to forming history. All existences, both before him and after him, receive their meaning from Christ’s existence” (Von Balthasar, A Theology of History, 76). As such, in this course, the students will explore the historical and transcendent aspects of the Church from its inception “in the heart of the Father” (Catechism of the Catholic Church) to its eschatological—its end of time—existence.
Course goal: In this, the first part of a series of Church History courses, the student will examine Trinitarian Theology (the Church that was “in the heart of the Father”), through the Church’s preparation in the Old Testament, to Jesus’ founding and His sending of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. The student, moved by such knowledge of God’s love for His people, will, in turn, be devoted even more readily to the Church.
