Beginning on June 1, 2015, Professors Gary Anderson and John Cavadini will lead a MOOC – a massive, open, online class that is available to anyone with an internet connection. Their course, titled “Jesus in Scripture and Tradition,” will introduce students to a theological way of reading the Christian Bible. By exploring three interrelated questions: Who is Israel, Who is Jesus and Who is the Church we hope to provide the student with means of contemplating the identity of Jesus Christ as he has been understood in the Christian tradition. As the questions suggest, the identity of Jesus Christ is inseparable from the mystery of Israel and that of the Church. To ponder one is to ponder all three.
