Honors Theology 9 - Kolbe Academy

Honors Theology 9

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.

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 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
  • 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

Students taking this course for Kolbe Honors (OH) credit will have 4 papers per semester as chosen by their main instructor.  Daily reading, minor weekly written assignments, required participation, and exams will also be assigned and graded by the instructor.

Honors students will attend a live Honors Seminar that meets periodically throughout the year.  Honors seminar will require projects and additional reading in the form of essays, articles, and encyclicals with the purpose of going into more depth on the topics being studied in class.  Students will be graded on active participation during live seminar.  The type of participation required will vary but includes activities such as active discussion, collaborative group work, and presentations.  The participation grade from honors seminar will be weighted 20% into the student’s overall grade for the honors course.
