Sacred Scripture: Two Testaments, One Book

This session presents the Bible as divine inspiration and inerrancy. It is different from any other text in human history by virtue of its divine inspiration and inerrancy. The Word becomes flesh in the fullest sense in the Incarnation, this casting of the Eternal expression has already begun in the Sacred Scriptures. The different “senses” (literal, allegorical, moral and anagogical) will be introduced, as well as the responsibility of the Church for ascertaining and defining the canon (which needs to be defined in this context). It examines the relationship between the Old and New Testaments and the normativity of both for Christian Faith, together with the role of Sacred Scripture in the life of the Church and of Christians.
