New Seminar: Christology, reading Bernard Lonergan’s The Incarnate Word
February 3 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
To prepare for this first meeting of this new internet online seminar, please obtain or purchase a copy of Bernard Lonergan’s The Incarnate Word, eds. Robert M. Doran and Jeremy D. Wilkins. University of Toronto Press. Let us begin with Thesis 1: The teaching of the New Testament establishes that one and the same Jesus of Nazareth (1) is true man, (2) in many ways participates in what is divine, and (3) is true God. Please look into the opening pages of Thesis 1. Read from p. 3 to the end of p. 13. This is 6 pages of English text. Latin is given on the opposite pages. Previously known participants have already received a digital copy of a chapter 7 that is taken from Bernard Lonergan’s book, “Topics in Education.” We will use this text to help us pass through material that is given in the pages which follow p. 13 when, in his Christology text, Lonergan deals the question of philosophical differences and its effect on understanding what the New Testament establishes about who Jesus is as true man and true God. The chapter 7 that is taken from Lonergan’s “Topics in Education” is entitled “The Theory of Philosophical Differences.” Hence, the appropriateness of referring to the contents of this chapter. Notes will be provided to help participants.
