Though Jesus was not a philosopher in the strict sense of the word, he certainly seems to have been a professional teacher with a mind of his own, a world-view and a way of life to propose. His thought can be examined philosophically strictly apart of his traditionally religious persona. The short course will seek to investigate what seem to be Jesus’ cultural and intellectual milieu, his mind-structures and his teachings, particularly his anthropology, his politics and his ethics. At the end of the course, participants should be able to appreciate better the coherence of Jesus’ thought, and its relevance in today’s world for individuals, communities and society at large.
