Jesus the Messiah of Israel

The past session have unfolded the history leading up to the Incarnation and have culminated in the history of Jesus’ life on earth. With the benefit of this global perspective, in this present session we will focus on the continuity and discontinuity between Jesus' identity and mission and those of Israel with its institutions. Specifically, the relationship of Jesus to the Law of Moses and the Temple will be considered. Finally, against the backdrop of Israel’s monotheistic faith, Jesus’ revelation of the Holy Trinity will be expounded.
