“The substance of the ancient doctrine of the deposit of faith is one
thing, and the way in which is presented is another”. This statement in the
opening speech of John XXIII to Vatican II is echoed in Werner Jeanrond’s
argument that speaks of division of labor in theology. It is a division that
involves exegesis and systematic and practical theologians, he argues. The
present course seeks to consider this argument critically in order to show
how exegesis and systematics are the backbone for doing theology.
Objective: To show how systems and exegesis are central to systematic
Method: We shall read and discuss various exegetical and systematic
analyses chosen by the instructor for the course.
