Prolegomenon-Things That Must be Said Before (graded)

Prolegomenon-Things That Must be Said Before

This week we begin our study of the Western Religions of Judaism and Christianity. For many members of this class, this will involve an examination of your religious tradition. Before embarking on this journey, it is good to look at what we are bringing with us. As noted in week 1, religions are lived and dynamic realities. If you are part of any religious tradition, you have inherited beliefs and values from it. Your understanding of its origins and practices have been molded by it. You see the divine through the lenses it has created. Understanding your “lenses” is essential when studying a religious tradition. You will read and interpret scared texts through these lenses and your experience of the divine will be shaped by them.

A prolegomenon, or prefatory remarks, is one way to understand how you are approaching the study of your religious tradition. These remarks are “Things That Must be Said Before”, a critical introduction to your study. They will identify the “presuppositions” underlying the study. Presuppositions are things assumed beforehand or taken for granted.

For your first post, I would like you to write your “Prolegomenon”. What are your underlying presuppositions guiding your study of Judaism and Christianity? Here are some presuppositions you can address:

1. Revelation-Has God been revealed to humankind in the Jewish and Christian Traditions? Is this revelation confined to the historical periods of the Bible or is it continuing? Is there a revelation of God outside of the Jewish and Christian traditions?

2. Holy Scripture-Is the Bible an authoritative record of the revelation of God?

3. Divine Nature-What is God like?

4. Salvation-What is the way of salvation?

5. The People of God-Who are the people of God?

6. Religious Experience-How is God experienced?

7. Human Nature-Is human nature good or evil?

8. Creation-How was the world created? Does it have an end?

9. Life-How is humankind to live?

10. Death-What happens after death?

You do not have to address all presuppositions in one post! I look forward to your insights!
