This course is a study of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from biblical, fundamental-theological, and systematic perspectives. What do Christians have to say about hope? What is the ultimate of Christian hope? What hope is there for change, transformation, new possibilities within the world of today marked by various forms of marginalization and untimely death? While aiming at the intelligible answers primarily based on the Scripture and best Christian traditions, this course opens students up to a disposition of listening to, and discerning, different cultural views (Asian stories and beyond) on hope (as well as on hopelessness) and its possible empowering elements. Then, what are we going to do about it in the meantime? What are the liberating and practical ways in which hope can come alive for communities as well as individual with an increasing awareness of the present culture of ambiguity and the fragility of our natural and social environments? Readings from biblical scholars, reflections from liberation theologians and on ones own experience in depth will be the main sources of information and discussion.
