010106 SE Who is Jesus Christ? The messiah in christian and jewish perspectives (2016S)

5.00 ECTS (2.00 SWS), SPL 1 - Katholische Theologie
Continuous assessment of course work

This course will deal with some developments concerning the question of Jesus as Christ fifty year after the constitution “Nostra Aetate” formulated by the 2nd Vatican Council. Since then Christian scholars as well as Jewish scholars have been working on this topic. That is why the course will work on texts of Rabbis, theologians, and historians. The course will be focused on the inquiry, if and how Jewish accesses to Jesus have been having an effect in theological Christology and in which ways Christians may gain essential knowledge of Jesus by learning from Jewish reflections on him. The literature in use is German and English

- Recent ecclesiastical teaching of Christ (Dominus Iesus, 6th of Aug., 2000, and “The Gifts and the Calling of God are Irrevocable” (Rom 11:29), 10th of Dec., 2015)
- Arguments on God becoming man in Christ (Alon Goschen-Gottstein, Klaus Wengst)
