It presents the historical richness and diversity of the Church's moral tradition, seeking to provide the student with an awareness, understanding and appreciation of the resources of the tradition. By tracing the history of the development of Church's moral teaching, the syllabus seeks to relate the Church's on-going moral discernment with the development of the history. Through the use of cases, the course will illustrate methods of moral analysis, the application of moral principles, the dynamics between magisterium and conscience, and pastoral approaches to difficult moral cases.

SATURDAY 8:00am - 10:00am
TH201 Christology (3 units)
Sr. Kathleen Coyle, ssc
This course is mainly concerned with the formation of Christology in the New Testament. It begins with a survey of the quest for the historical Jesus and examines the criteria of finding him through the gospels. The aims of Jesus, particularly his central message of the Reign of God, are revealed through his ministry of word and deed. This leads us to the climax of his saving work in his death and resurrection. A study of the early Church's proclamation and confession of faith shows the various Christological patterns and titles given to the Risen Lord. The course also deals with Wisdom and Logos Christology with reference to the hymns of the New Testament. It also deals with the development of Christology from the Apostolic age to the Council of Chalcedon and discusses how the doctrine of Christ as true God and true man may be formulated today.
SATURDAY 10:00am - 12:00pm
Th102: Old Testament II - Prophets (3 units)
This course offers a general introduction to the phenomenon of prophetism in the Old Testament.

It pays close attention to the prophets of social justice whose oracles continue to inspire parallel forms in contemporary Filipino society.
SATURDAY 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Th005 Fundamental Theology (3 units)
