In Theology 102: Salvation History II students continue studying the history of salvation, but enter this semester into the New Testament, whose very completion of the Old Testament furnishes a pattern for Christian life and thought, passing from shadows to images to realities. Accordingly, this semester also takes up questions of the inspiration, inerrancy, and interpretation of Scripture as containing many “senses” or levels of meaning and investigates how theology is built on the foundation of the Word of God, how this Word is handed down to us in Scripture and apostolic Tradition, how faith is related to reason, and how theology differs from other disciplines in its role as Queen of the Sciences.
