ICT 102: The Word of God – Scripture and Tradition

This course studies God’s self-revelation throughout salvation history as it has been received and handed on by the believing community in the forms of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. Based on the Catholic doctrine of revelation and its reception as expressed in Dei Verbum , the course examines the central teachings of the Catholic faith, such as creation, fall, and redemption, Trinity and Incarnation, the Church and the Holy Spirit, as these have been expressed in the Scriptures and developed throughout the history of the Church’s tradition. Emphasis is placed on reading primary sources, including major Biblical texts, writings of Church Doctors and Fathers, major theologians, magisterial documents, and writings from the Franciscan tradition.

ICT 602: Biblical Catechetics

Graduate Classes (for those students who have completed or have had the pre-reqs waived)

"The 'study of the sacred page' should be the very soul of sacred theology. The ministry of the Word... pastoral preaching, catechetics, and all forms of Christian instruction... is healthily nourished and thrives in holiness through the Word of Scripture" (DV 24). This course focuses on the centrality of Scripture in the work of evangelization and catechesis. The content of the apostles' teaching and their use of Scripture, the scriptural basis of the catechesis of the Fathers and current magisterial documents related to Scripture and catechesis will be covered. Finally, this course explores the implementation of Scripture for evangelistic and catechetical purposes.
