Knowledge and Freedom of Jesus
In a time where believers and unbelievers wonder about who was Jesus, in connection with their own questions about the meaning of their life, this course will ponder viewpoints about the humanity of Christ, taken from exegetes and theologians. We shall discuss issues such as the following:
-How should we interpret the “he emptied himself” of Philippians 2:6-11?
-To what extent was Jesus similar to us?
-Did he have faith, or did he possess a perfect knowledge that ruled out faith?
-How much of the Father’s design did he know? Did his understanding of his mission evolve, in light of events that shaped his reflections?
-Was his freedom in all respects like ours?
-Was he really tempted?
-What happened at Gethsemane and on the cross?
-Why could Jesus accomplish something that neither Buddha nor Gandhi nor anyone else could achieve?
