THE 5601 Unification Theology
This course explores theological expressions of the Unification message in the context of Christian theology, not only addressing various theological issues and problems in the Christian tradition, but also benefiting from Christian theology for the self-clarification and self-understanding of Unification theology. This course enhances the ability to explain and defend the Unification message in dialogue with Christian clergy and lay people. (3 credits, 12 weeks)
- Taught byDr. Theodore Shimmyo, Adjunct Associate Professor of Theology at UTS. Dr. Shimmyo served as the President of UTS from 1994-2000. He published many theological articles and such books as Explorations in Unificationism (1977). His ongoing passion is to write more on theology.
SCR 5131 Hebrew Bible
The Hebrew Bible is the scripture of two faiths; it is the Old Testament of Christianity and the TaNaKh (Torah, Prophets and Writings) of Judaism. For Christians it prophesied the coming of Christ, while Jews value it for the Law of Moses and its record of Israel’s history. We will study multiple viewpoints, Christian and Jewish.
The course also introduces the conflicting views about the Bible and how it ought to be read. For traditionalists it is the inerrant truth of God, while moderns apply historical-critical methods seeking the facts of history. Each perspective has something to offer.
Finally, students will practice the discipline of exegesis, an essential skill for preaching the Word. (3 credits, 15 weeks)
- Taught by Dr. Andrew Wilson, Professor of Scriptural Studies. Dr. Wilson is a prolific scholar, whose books and papers cover diverse topics ranging from religion and peace to character education to the theory of the spirit world.
EDU 5604 Unification Apologetics in Practical Contexts
Apologetics is the defense or vindication of a religion, cause, or organization in response to criticism, that respects the critic’s perspective, learns from it, answers in their language, and leads to continued engagement. An apologist needs to have thorough knowledge of that for which s/he is apologizing. With this in mind, this class draws from Unification teachings and history to respond to criticisms and accusations related to heresy, sexual practices, mind control, business and political activities, and internal corruption. The class reviews the criticisms, presents answers, and provides students the opportunity to practice apologetics. Students will understand the foundation for Unification apologetics, build apologetical skills in general, and develop their understanding and assessment of Unificationism. (3 credits, 12 weeks)
