Location: Scanlan, Jerabeck
Length: N/A mins
Description: Fr. Walter Werbylo, CSB is an assistant professor of theology at UST. “This lecture will examine New Testament passages, which show both that Jesus instituted the ministerial priesthood (the priesthood of bishops and priests) and the nature of that priesthood,” said Fr. Werbylo. “Three ideas are useful for organizing the New Testament data: first, this priesthood is rooted in Jesus’ priesthood; second, Jesus and those continuing his priesthood exercise a threefold office of priest, prophet, and king; and third, the image of the shepherd depicts these priests.” Fr. Werbylo is one of the scripture scholars on the theology faculty and certainly will provide an enriching evening for all. (Part 1 of 3)
