The Gospels and the Letters of Paul, Eastern Christian Non-linguistic Version

The course deepens the knowledge of early interpretations of Jesus, explores intertextual questions of the synoptics, provides insights into the history and theology of the Johannine movement, and examines the context and world of thought of Paul and the Pauline parishes. Emphasis is placed on the social context and literary design of the texts, as well as their various theological tendencies. Particular attention is paid to the patristic reception of the Gospels.
