Exploring the Scriptures for Types
of Mary (1 CEU) SCRPT-N070
Enjoy a three week online seminar with Instructor, Christopher Padgett.
Who are the persons from the Old Testament who reveal glimpses of all that the New Testament unfolds about Mary? This three week online seminar will not only address such a study but will lead participants to conclude that knowing the full Scriptural story of Mary will enable one to live the Catholic faith with greater confidence.
Throughout the first week, participants will delve into the Old Testament matriarchs and other female figures that portray positive or negative qualities of Mary. During the second week, participants will consider the impact of Mary being the New Eve; and over the course of week three, participants will focus on the application of these Scriptural Marian types for all who live today.
Those who complete this seminar
should be able to explain the concept of a “type” in Scripture, give examples
of Marian types in the Old Testament, compare these types with the fulfillment
of each in the New Testament, and reflect upon the parallels that Marian types
have with those addressing Jesus Christ. Ultimately, these insights will
transform one’s appreciation for the Mother of God and her unfathomable
influence on each person’s life.
