Final Project The Mission of Jesus Christ (The Paschal Mystery)
This project is worth 15% of your grade (240 points). It is both an individual project and a small group project. It is divided into two parts: 1st a Google Slide presentation; and 2nd an individual paper.
This project is to help you recall the material covered this semester and begin to review for the final. Therefore, the material presented should be drawn out from the course itself. Stay close to the material covered in class and you will be helping yourself, your group, and the class review for the final.
You and your group will use one of the Covenants in the Old Testament and one of the Luminous Mysteries to show how they both ‘point to’ or ‘are fulfilled by’ Jesus’ Paschal Mystery.
1–Pick one of the Old Testament Covenants from Unit 3 (Presentations will be in the O. T. order):
Abraham and the Covenant (Gen. 15) Moses and the Sinai Covenant (Ex. 19-20)
Joshua and the Covenant (Jos 24:13-28) David and the Covenant (2 Sam 7:8-17)
Elijah and the Priests of Baal (1 Kings 18) Elijah and at Mount Horeb (1 Kings 19)
Suffering Servant songs (4 Songs in Isaiah) The Exile and the Covenant (Ezek 2:1-3:4 or 37:1-14)
Jonah and the Covenant (Jonah; Jer. 51:34; Is. 42:6) The Expectations of the Messiah (many)
2–Pick one of the Luminous Mysteries from Unit 4:
The Baptism of Jesus The Wedding at Cana The Proclamation of the Kingdom
The Transfiguration The Institution of the Eucharist
3–Show how the O.T. Covenant and the Luminous Mystery point to Jesus’ Paschal Mystery (death & resurrection).
The whole group is required to be actively participating in the presentation. Both the preparation and the presenting. The individual paper is not presented; but will help you understand the theme so you can write and present well.
