Theology I

(A) (Pre-recorded Distance Education Option Available)

Live Online Course:

This course explores the nature of theological work and also some major themes of the systematic theology of the Christian church: the doctrines of the triune God, his being and works including creation; of the Lord Jesus Christ (Incarnation and Christology), of humanity (theological anthropology); the doctrine of sin (hamartiology); the doctrines of Scripture and revelation. In this course, we will take an incarnational approach to systematic theology. As the creeds themselves indicate, theology is biblically grounded, reflective unfolding of God’s self-revelation in the incarnation. Consequently, we will study theology based mainly on primary texts so that students will actually do theology and follow the historical development of doctrines to become acquainted with the greater Christian tradition. This course is designed to impress on students the practical relevance of theology: the object of theology is Christ, in whom every strand of our understanding of God, world, and self comes together and has its ultimate reference point. The goal of theology is attainment of our full humanity through transformation into Christlikeness. In offering a broad range of texts and authors to unfold the riches of the tradition, this course aims to accommodate beginners and more advanced students in theology.


Pre-Recorded Distance Education Course: 

This course explores major themes of the systematic theology of the Christian church: the doctrines of the triune God (theology Proper), his being and works including creation; of the Lord Jesus Christ (Christology), of humanity (theological anthropology) and in particular, the nature of human personhood made in the image of God; the doctrine of sin (hamartiology), and the doctrine of angels (angelology and demonology). It also introduces students to methodology in the study of theology and to the doctrines of Scripture and revelation. The course will examine the historic orthodox Christian teachings on these subjects, their scriptural and historical basis and how these doctrines interact with each other, and why these things matter in the life of the church and in the formation of the Christian mind, the Christian life and mission.
