This course is designed to explore a question which is remarkably simple, on the one hand, and yet is perhaps the single-most profound question we can ask: Who is God? Specifically, the course will explore the nature of Jesus Christ as the Human God. Who was Christ? Who was the promised Messiah of Isaiah and the other ancient prophets? What are the implications of faith in, and relationship with a Human God?
In exploring these questions, we will call primarily on three sources: the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, the teachings for the New Church recorded by Emanuel Swedenborg, and the academic perspective of a Christological study.
