ABOUT THIS COURSE

In this module we review the implications of Jesus’ teachings on our social interactions in today’s world. We draw parallels between the teachings of Jesus and of Paul while discussing views in the history of the church which have attempted to correlate Jesus’ and Paul’s gospel messages. In the second part of the module we apply Jesus’ teachings to the practical peace building initiatives in our time.
