This course introduces students to the Blessed Trinity in and through the fullness of God’s revelation of Himself: Jesus Christ. They will study the Incarnation, the union of Christ’s two natures, Jesus as the exemplar of humanity, as well as the unique role of Mary, the mother of God.

He has also directly revealed Himself to us, which is transmitted to us today through Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scriptures. In this unit, you will learn about God's revelation of Himself, our response of faith to Him, and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.Jump to this unit →
3Jesus Christ's Revelation about God
Faith, as we have seen, is our response to God's invitation to enter into a relationship with Him and become His disciple. Ultimately, it is an encounter with Jesus Christ. In Unit 3, we will discuss what Jesus Christ reveals to us about God, who is a Trinity of Persons. Through Jesus we come to know more intimately the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus is at the very center of our relationship with God.Jump to this unit →
4Jesus Christ Teaches Us about Ourselves
The central message of Christ's public ministry is, "This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the Gospel." Our time on earth is meant to prepare us to enter into the Kingdom of God. Jesus Himself is our roadmap to holiness. When we keep His Commandments, we will be set free to do what is good and holy and, ultimately, to reach our final destination, which is heaven.Jump to this unit →
