RELIGION 9 SEMESTER ONE COURSE OUTLINE 2015 Welcome to Religion 9, A & B Blocks Journey through the New Testament The goal of Catholic Education is to make one’s “faith become living, conscience and active through the light of instruction.” To have a living faith we must truly integrate it into our entire being. To have a conscious faith we must process, discern, and understand. To have a truly active faith we must enter into relationships and into service. A variety of people are involved, and a number of influences affect our own journey towards this goal.  We are going to examine The New Testament and the life, work, and ministry of Jesus in this course.
