Beauty Ever Ancient, Ever New: Intro to Theological Aesthetics

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." "Beauty is only skin deep." For many, beauty is a 'superficial' concept whlch seems out of place in Christian theology. However, Swiss theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar wrote that the person who forgets or sneers at beauty "can no longer pray and soon will be unable to love." Is beauty of vital importance to our understanding of God? The history of Christian thought is full of discussions of the beauty of God and creation, from Augustine's beauty "ever ancient, ever new" to theologians as diverse as Jonathan Edwards and David Bentley Hart. Moreover, the past century has seen the rise of "theological aesthetics," a renewed attempt to recover an approach to both knowing God through beauty and investigating earthly beauty in light of divine glory. This course will examine topics such as the beauty of the Triune God, the beauty of the cross, and the beauty of humanity in the image of God by surveying the work of major theologians from across the broad spectrum of the Christian tradition. We will then attempt to bring a "theology of beauty" into conversation with contemporary cultural discussions of beauty and meaning, including issues surrounding art, justice and the human person.

Reading Biblical Texts Contextually: Mark and Paul in Asian Biblical Interpretation

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

All reading of biblical texts takes place in a context. Paying attention to how context affects reading provides insight, not only into the process of the reception of biblical texts, but also into the biblical texts themselves. This course explores the dynamic of reading biblical texts by examining how selected passages from the Gospel of Mark and the letters of Paul have been taken up in recent years specifically within two related fields of discourse: what is often described as Asian biblical interpretation, and its cousin, Asian American biblical interpretation. Through assigned readings, lectures, class discussions, student presentations, and individual case studies of specific biblical texts, this course will introduce students to published materials in Asian and Asian American biblical interpretation, and in so doing give students an opportunity to reflect on their own context as a lens for interpretation.

History of Biblical Interpretation

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

For most of Christian history the interpretation of the Bible was a pastoral activity. Drawing on basic notions of post-modern consideration of 'reader response', we will survey the pre-critical interpretation history of the Bible from a diachronic perspective as an unfolding process across history, and in key synchronic snapshots focusing on types of interpretation as specific moments in the history. How do interpretations reflect and repress the tensions, inner dynamics and problematics of the biblical texts to which they are a response? How are they responses to the needs of the community in specific places and times? We will examine theories of interpretation and and also actual examples of interpretation from various periods. Broad topics will include: early Christian interpretation of texts from Leviticus and Ecclesiastes, hermeneutic approaches of Origen, Augustine, Luther and others, mediaeval readings of the book of Ruth, Luther and Calvin as archetypal Reformation readers of scripture, visual art as a form of biblical interpretation, the emergence of historical-critical models of reading, and the cantatas and Passions of J.S. Bach as instances of affective and intellective interpretation.

Why Scrolls Matter. An Introduction to the Dead Sea Scrolls as a Template for Abrahamic Traditions

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) provide an important template for those wishing to study
scripture or exegetical material of any Abrahamic tradition (whether Jewish, Christian, or Muslim) and its formation. The scrolls frequently reinterpret texts which highlight a "particular type of intertextuality which exists between an authoritative scriptural antecedent and its subsequent reuse in a type of rewriting, in which there is a close textual relationship between the scriptural predecessor and the rewritten work" (Petersen 2012: 485). This tradition of reinterpreted scripture, seen as a "textual strategy" (Petersen 484), is present within varying DSS literary genres of authoritative scriptural texts, legal rules, religious disputes, liturgical traditions, and even commentaries. Such a practice of reinterpreting earlier texts is found within not only Jewish scripture but is also similar to what one finds in early Christian and Islamic scriptural and exegetical traditions as' well. Having such a comprehension is helpful for exegesis and understanding the underlying purpose of any of the above scriptural and textual traditions. Thus this course undertakes a study of the practice of reinterpreted scripture as evidenced in the DSS genres of scripture, legal rules, religious disputes, liturgical traditions, and commentaries (pesharim). An introduction to the scrolls, their discovery and preservation, their sectarian nature and the related history of the Qumran site will also be addressed as an essential component of understanding the nature of the scrolls.

Community Development: Tools and Practices for Transformation

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

In the last three decades, disappointment with traditional "top-down" international development delivered by external experts began to propel community-driven approaches from the margins to the centre of development practice. This family of community development approaches includes a range of siblings with names such as grassroots development, people-centred development, participatory learning and action (PLA), capabilities-based development, and assets-based community development. Marginalized communities are offered capacities to shape the direction
of their own lives, and to challenge and change unjust social, political and economic structures.

These participatory approaches elevated local people and their organizations to central roles in decision-making and implementation of development strategies. To be sustainable and effective, community transformation requires local agents of change who focus on developing local capacities and skills. These change agents - whether local church or community organization leaders or practitioners - need to be well-equipped with knowledge and tools to inspire, guide and facilitate change processes that match well the local context and conditions. Through the rich past and present of community development, a range of tools and practices have emerged worthy of study and application.

Social World of Ancient Israel

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This advanced seminar will be grounded in a sociological study of ancient Israel as a basis for critical applications/appropriation of social world topics in contemporary contexts. Social scientific models have been used in biblical studies to describe, analyze and contextualize social realities such as: social groups (e.g., family, clan, tribe, elite classes); cultural relationships (e.g., honor/shame, marriage; debt servitude); patterns of behavior (e.g., sacrifice, prophecy, gender); political structures (e.g., monarchy, empire); political, economic and social change (e.g., emergence of states, changes in social stratification); historical eras (e.g., early Israel, Judah under Persian rule); and socially constructed realities (e.g., ethnicity, gender, language and rhetoric, symbolism). When practiced with post-modem and ideological criticisms, social scientific criticism also identifies the social context of the interpreter and the construction and use of models and interpretation of data in contemporary contexts and issues.

The first part of the course will cover methods and topics in the sociology of  ncient Israel, reading in the literature of social scientific criticism in the last three decades in Hebrew Bible studies. We will study the impact of social scientific  methods on Biblical research and interpretation, including perspectives that emerged in biblical studies across disciplines with literary, feminist, ideological, liberation theology, and global hermeneutical approaches. We will consider heuristic models for appropriating and critiquing insights from the study of ancient social worlds in contemporary applications. In the second half of the course, each student will give a seminar presentation that reviews one of the topics of the social world of the HB. The final research paper assigned will use a social scientific reading of an HB text to create a hermeneutic for appropriation of ancient data, and suggest connections to a contemporary social issue. Contemporary issues for student research focus can include gender, feminism, land, ecology, stratification, cities, community, empire and resistance, etc.

From the Gospel to the Gospels (NT I)

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2013 · Online Course

An introduction to the four Gospels in their social, historical and theological settings. Using a "socio-literary" approach, we will study the Gospels within a two-dimensional framework, both centred on what the early Christians called the "gospel" or "Kerygma." One dimension has to do with social history the origin and development of Christianity as a distinct social entity, from its foundations in the ministry of Jesus and the Easter experience, through its emergence as a Jewish renewal movement, and on to its development into a separate, largely Gentile, institutionalized religion. The second dimension has to do with literature the process by which the Gospels came to be written, their literary form and texture, and their character as narrative versions of the "gospel." Weekly online lectures, assigned analysis/reflection papers, discussion board postings.

New Testament Responses to Violence

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  Previously offered in Summer 2013 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

A variety of recent political events have confronted students of theology with the spectre of violence in recent years, inevitably raising the question of how to engage the issue theologically. This course will aid students' engagement with various forms of violence (imperial, gender, economic, etc.) through the various New Testament authors and their own dealings with the issues. Indeed, insofar as the Bible is accorded significant political value, it is vital - regardless of one's own religious proclivities - to understand what the texts contained in the New Testament have to report on these issues in their own era. This course surveys various points at which New Testament authors encountered the violence. It aims to acquaint students with the social world of the New Testament, to familiarize students in major issues in the study of the New Testament, and to aid students in the development of a biblical hermeneutic conscious of its implications.
