Public Lecture (06.02.18)

“Spiritual Reflections on Love and Unity in the Johannine Community”

By Prof. Dr Beate Kowalski (Dortmund University)

This lecture takes place on Tuesday, 6th February 2018 at the Seminary Library, Rabat at 6 pm.

Prof. Kowalski will explain how while the author of John’s gospel narrates the Jesus’ story with reduced vocabulary, nonetheless he does so with spiritual depth and highly reflected theology. The author accompanies his addressees on a mystagogical path to Jesus, the Messiah and Son of God. As mystagogical teacher, he is able to direct his readers and listeners throughout the centuries to the mystery of Jesus and the nature of an authentic Christian community. John’s theology and spirituality are two sides of one coin that are timeless, realistic and visionary at the same time. He definitely has a say in the matter of love and unity and can lead contemporary Christians to a deeper understanding of the faith.
