Honors Theology 9 - Beta

Introduction to Sacred Scripture

This course is designed to familiarize the student with the revealed word of God. It explains how we come to know Christ, the Word of God, better through both the Old and New Testaments. The course introduces the student to methods of reading and understanding God's Word and teaches the student the content and significance of the Old and New Testaments. The Bible History course offered in 7th & 8th Grade is a helpful pre-requisite to this course.

Course Description

This course will enable the student to understand and embrace the Church's teaching on Divine Revelation, in both Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition; understand the role of the Magisterium in preserving, defending, interpreting, and explaining the Word of God; become familiar with the Messianic prophecies and their fulfillment in Christ, and recognize the Church, in her four marks, prefigured in Israel; know how to read God's Word with understanding and to begin to read it prayerfully and profitably; understand the historical and eternal significance of the Incarnation, public ministry, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ; trace the development of the Church from its founding by our Lord to the death of the last Apostle and the closing of public revelation, and to understand our Lord's provisions for the continuity of His Holy Church from then to now; and find and explain the New Testament passages that teach the Real Presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, as well as the passages referring to the other six sacraments.

Course Expectations

Students taking this course for Kolbe Core (K) credit will have four major assignments each semester.  Two of those four assignments will be paper topic essays, and the other 2 may also be essays, but could instead include other types of creative projects, oral presentations, or other appropriate assignments pertinent to the course.  Additionally, core students should also expect to have daily reading, minor weekly written assignments, and exams as assigned by their parent. 

All requirements are assigned and graded by the parent - Enhanced Evaluation Service is available for additional grading assistance.
