RS 511 Overview
It can easily be argued that the work of pastoral ministry flows directly from the ministry, teaching, and salvific work that was accomplished by Jesus Christ and that is communicated to us through the Gospels and writings of the New Testament. This course will focus on what the revealed Word of God teaches about God’s salvific plan, the person of Jesus, and how his message of the Kingdom of God is to be embodied in the life and ministry of the Church. Students will use the Gospels as the foundation and examine how the other writings clarify and expand upon that basic message. In addition, students will explore the many ways that this foundational text intersects and forms the pastoral activities that flow from various ministerial contexts.
