Rector’s Conf – Jesus Christ

Tonight’s “Rector’s Conference” was the 3rd part in a series on “Reason, Formation and Relationship with Christ.”  I’m slow at taking down notes, so I welcome corrections or addition.

I. Intro — reflection on Matthew 16:13-19

II.  The Good News: Jesus Christ
          A.  The Gospel — is a “person” — Jesus is the “Good News” that is proclaimed
          B.  The Heart of Evangelization — is a “person” (Jesus) that is proclaimed in order to lead others to him.
          C.  The Heart of Catechesis — is a “person” — instructions in the faith leads us to communion with Jesus.

Passion of ChristIII.  The Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of God, our Lord.
          A.  Jesus — means “God saves” and there is power in his name.
          B.  Christ — means “Messiah” or “Anointed One” by the Father
          C.  The Only Son — relationship with the Father
          D.  Lord — claim Him as God

IV.  The Incarnation
          A.  Why?
               1.  in order to save us by reconciling us to God
               2.  so we might know God’s love
               3.  be our model for holiness
               4.  make us partakers in the devine nature
          B.  True God & True Man
               — mentioned some early Church heresies
               — “God became Man”
               — Jesus had a human soul, human will, human body, and loved with a human heart (in order to show us how)

V.  The Mystery
          — His words, deeds, silences and being is a revelation of the Father
          — His whole life is a mystery of redemption that we must be open to receive

VI.  The Face of God
          — Jesus speaks as one who sees God the Father face to face
