My Classes

My classes at Franciscan this semester are:

Theology of Christ - T - 6:00-9:00pm
Philosophy of the Human Person - MW - 4:00-5:15
Sacraments - R - 2:15-5:00
Foundations of Catholicism - R - 6:00-9:00pm

AND...the class I'm most excited about is one that I'm not even really enrolled in. Fr. James Swetnam, S.J. is a visiting professor this semester teaching a graduate course on the book of Hebrews. Through some lucky connections, I was asked to come sit in on this class. I'm beyond excited. Fr. Swetnam is a big-daddy when it comes to Hebrews. He also argues for Pauline authorship (as do I, except I think Luke actually wrote it as Paul's amanuensis). This should be really fun.

I've heard the Luke hypothesis before. Is it the similarities in the Greek that makes you think so?

That's pretty much it. It's Pauline theology wrapped in Lukan language. It seems to fit with what we know of Pauline chronology as well.

Then again, I'm speaking as an amateur on every subject above.
