The Gospel of John

Semester 2, 2021 at Yarra Theological Union

Enrol in the Gospel of John being taught by our amazing Professor Mary Coloe PBVM.

This unit offers a critical scholarly study of the theological, literary, and pastoral significance of The Gospel of John within its First-Century context. It will include a study of the emergence of Johannine Christianity and its relationship to Judaism following the destruction of Jerusalem, and the distinctive Johannine response to this event.  Using narrative-critical methods the unit will follow the text of the Gospel, particularly in its structural and symbolic elements, in order to elucidate the particular theology of this Gospel.

Face to Face: Tuesday evenings 6pm–9pm (Box Hill)

Online via Zoom: Thursday mornings 9.30am–12.30pm

Places are limited. Call Yarra Theological Union on 03 9890 3771 or email admin@ytu.edu.au
