Description

Along with Christian Thought and Culture II, this course is intended to provide an historical, theological and cultural complement to Old Testament and New Testament Foundations.
The course is organized around the ancient confession that Jesus is Lord, a statement that lays claim to all of human thought and activity, public as well as private, to all of history, and indeed to the entire created world. It is an affirmation that has fundamental implications for Christian mission - for questions of meaning and identity, freedom and authority, politics and cultural purpose. Lectures include:

  • "Jesus is Lord" - A Global Confession - Iwan Russell-Jones
  • The Lordship of Christ and the Challenges of Modernity and Post-Modernity - Craig Gay
  • A World Changing Confession - The Impact of Christian Practice and Lifestyle on the Ancient World - John Stackhouse
  • The Ancient World: "Jesus is Lord" in the Meeting of Christian Faith and Pagan Philosophy - Hans Boersma
  • From Faith in Jesus to the Doctrine of the Trinity - Ross Hastings
  • Where Does Authority Lie? Christ's Lordship in the Canon of Scripture and the Councils of the Church - Craig Allert
  • Jesus and the Empire: How Does the Lordship of Christ relate to Constantine and His Successors? - John Stackhouse
  • Lord of the Body: Monasticism, Asceticism, and Sexual Renunciation in Christian History - Bruce Hindmarsh
  • Confessing Christ in the East: The Orthodox Church - Fr. Lawrence Farley
  • Confessing Christ in the West: Thomas Aquinas and the Medieval Synthesis - Hans Boersma
  • A Structured Discussion Exploring What We Have Learned from the Church of the First Millennium and a Half about What it Means to Confess that Jesus is Lord - Faculty Panel
