Winter 2020 Seminar: Baptism and the New Testament

Instructor: Dr. Joseph C. Atkinson, Associate Professor of Sacred Scripture, Pontifical John Paul II Institute, Washington, D.C. (Biosketch is <HERE>)

Course Description: The second essential key to renewal in the Church is the recovery of the authentic meaning of Baptism.  Here we enter into the mystery of Jesus’ own life in the Incarnation and how we become a living and organic part of His life through Baptism. Saint Paul says, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.” [Gal 2:20]  What can that mean practically for Christian people?  We will come to understand how real the great mystery of Baptism is, how we become one with Christ on the Cross, how our old nature is put to death and rises to new life in the Lord. To have salvation means being incorporated into Jesus and filled with the Holy Spirit.  In Baptism, our isolated existence is finally overcome and we become part of the organic Body of Christ, living in the Kingdom of God.
