Senior Colloquium: Encouraging the Knowledge of God

Offered in Winter 2010  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course will serve to integrate all that has preceded in the MDiv program. A diagnostic examination of the whole required curriculum will identify an area needing attention in the last term of study, and in this area the student will work in a weekly one-on-one tutorial with a professor. In addition the whole class will meet in five colloquia which will address issues in ministry calling for the marshalling of biblical, theological, and pastoral insights. A tutorial and a colloquium paper will be required. The issues dealt with in the latter will focus on deploying within the pastorate the major areas of theological formation: Scripture, Theology, History, Worship, Mission. The construction of working bibliographies of/for the active ministry, with respect to these areas, will be a part of this process. Evaluation will be based on engaged participation, the competion of assignments, and the colloquium paper. Restricted to Wycliffe M.Div. students.

Using the Bible

Offered in Winter 2010  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The Bible has been used to support all kinds of perspectives with varying degrees of responsibility. This course looks at the  use of the Bible in theological arguments. It will examine how the  Bible is APPLIED in conciliar and other church documents, as well as in  statements by ecumenical groups, sermons, and film. Some attention will be given to the variety of interpretive  methods in the history of the Church, but the main focus is the use (and abuse) of the Bible in contemporary theological argumentation. Topics include, e.g., Eucharistic debates, Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, the role of women in the Church, and responses to war. Drawing on the rich variety of contemporary hermeneutical options, the  course aims to enrich students' exegetical skills and critical ability when making theological arguments and using church documents. The course is team-taught by a Lutheran professor of New Testament and a Catholic professor of theology. Lectures, discussions, short papers, final take-home exam.
