BS686-1-19S – 保羅神學的「母體」:天啟末世論-- 葉應霖博士

2019-2020(3學分)

 

科目簡介

末日快臨,天將開啟。「天啟」(Apocalyptic) 若真的如Ernst Käsemann所說,是所有基督教神學之母,我們的信仰傳統是否輕視了某種「時代革命」的詮釋框架?活在「第二聖殿」時期的保羅,其神學思想究竟與同期萌芽發展中的天啟傳統有什麼關係?宇宙性場景裡的天使惡魔戰,又當怎樣與「因信稱義」的保羅神學傳統相容?

 

學習目標

從猶太天啟文獻(《以斯拉續編下卷》等)看保羅書信中的天啟主題

剖析「天啟論」四大神學範疇:知識觀、末世觀、宇宙觀、救恩觀

探索天啟末世論對當代保羅詮釋的意義
