The New Testament is collection of writings from the very earliest day of Christianity in which those who had met and known Jesus and his apostles tried to work out what they believed and how it made a differences to their lives and faith.
This course offers and introduction to the study of the New Testament books exploring their historical, social and literary contexts. We will examine the Gospels and selected Epistles in depth, as well as looking at the Acts of the Apostles and the Book of Revelation.
