Course Description

This course examines different interpretations about who and what Jesus is. It does so by exploring a set of questions regarding our knowledge about Jesus. For example, is it possible for those of us living in the modern era to understand Jesus in the same ways that his followers did? Do we need to know the original Jesus to know the “real” Jesus? How do we go about recovering this “real” Jesus? And how did these questions even become questions? Grades in this course are determined by several in-class assignments, two take-home papers, and some extra credit.
