ST 104 - mysteries of the one god iii: knowledge in god

Following upon the principles learned in our course which considered how we are to know and name God, this course continues St. Thomas' teachings on how we are to consider knowledge in God.  We will answer such questions as: whether there is any kind of knowledge that is not in God?  How is knowledge in God?  If knowledge that is in God true, does this mean that all knowledge is true?  How then are we to understand falsity, and can falsity exist in God's knowledge?  All these questions will ultimately lead us to a proper understanding of what it means to have LIFE.

SS 007 - AQUINAS' COMMENTARY ON THE GOSPEL OF JOHN ii: tHE PASSION, DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

Following the teachings and guidance of St. Thomas Aquinas, this course will focus on the last ten chapters of the Gospel of John. Further integrate yourself into the sacrificial offering of Jesus Christ this Lenten season by studying the most significant texts of our Catholic faith.  The Gospel of John II is a ten-class course focusing on the Passion of Jesus of Nazareth from His entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to His passion, death, and resurrection on Easter Sunday.  This class offers a time-manageable, yet deep study of the Christian tradition drawing from spiritual, scientific, and scriptural sources.  Each student will meet privately for one-on-one courses in which he/she and the professor will discuss the texts of Holy Scripture.  There is no reason to be worried about being able to fit class time into your schedule.  Mr. Harb will work with you and plan each of the ten classes conveniently into your schedule so that you are able to control your life’s busy calendar and learn more about your faith at the same time.  Sign up quickly, as there are a limited number of seats.  NOTE: It is not required to have taken John I in order to take this class.

LA 001 - BEGINNING LATIN

While the remote purpose of this course is for students to become proficient at reading the official language of the Church, its proximate purpose is to help students begin to read the Latin texts of St. Thomas as soon as possible.  By understanding the language which Aquinas wrote, a much fuller understanding of the principles involved can be achieved.
