Aims, contents and method of the course

This series of lectures has ten units:
1st unit: Topic and challenge of theology.
2nd and 3rd unit: Realtion between Judaism and Chrstianity as a central nota of Christia self-reflection; Christianity has no relevance and no meaning without or beyond its relation to the biblical Israel and the present Israel.

5th and 6th unit: Important philosophers and theologians in Christian history.
7th, 8th, and 9th unit: God's revelation as a central topic of systematic theology: its meaning (esp. within the Biblical tradition), prophets' and Jesus' concern on it, eternal covenant.
10th unit: Theology and modern society - antogonism or coherence?

- come to know that God's revelation is reflecting itself in a long series of experiences that have been transmitted by important witnesses;
