Introduction to New Testament- Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ Vietnamese Wed. Jan. 7, 14, 21, and 28

Wednesday, January 7, 2015 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Course #304. The New Testament begins with the incarnation of Jesus which signifies a major turning point in Scripture.  Jesus, Son of the living God, the “Word of God,” exceeds all human expectations of a Messiah.  His mission is to proclaim the Kingdom of God already among us.  The writings of the four evangelists recount their individual perception of Christ, as told to the Christian Communities they serve.  In addition to the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, the letters of Paul and others in the early apostolic community, and the Apocalyptic writings grow into a sound Catholic Christology by which we, today, continue to effectively evangelize and catechize.


At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the role of Jesus in the History of Salvation
  • Recognize the central message of Jesus’ preaching
  • Identify the role of Scripture in the life of the Early Church
  • Recognize the difference between the Synoptic Gospels and the Gospel of John
  • Learn how the New Testament writings; Gospels, Acts, Letters, and Revelation, begin  to spread the message of Jesus
  • Understand the place of Scripture in the believer’s life of study, prayer and liturgy

This is an intermediate Level I course of 10 hours.
