Theology 3: The Paschal Mystery
“The purpose of this course is to help students understand all that God has done for us through his Son, Jesus Christ. Through this course of study, students will learn that for all eternity, God has planned for us to share eternal happiness with him, which is accomplished through the redemption Christ won for us. Students will learn that they share in this redemption only in and through Jesus Christ. They will also be introduced to what it means to be a disciple of Christ and what life as a disciple entails.” – USCCB’s Doctrinal Elements of a Curriculum Framework
In this course, students will learn that for all eternity, God has planned for us to share in His eternal happiness and that this plan of salvation is accomplished through the Redemption Christ won for us. Students will learn that after the Fall, this Redemption is prefigured and prepared for by the covenants of the Old Testament, and that in all His words and deeds, Jesus reveals the Father’s will to save us through His redeeming Passion, Death, and Resurrection. Students will deepen their understanding of what it means to respond to the grace of Redemption as a disciple of Christ and what life as a disciple entails.
