In this third module of the School of the Bible, understanding of the New Testament message is deepened by providing historical and cultural backgrounds, and by noting the authors' emphases in writing to the intended audience. It begins with a study of the Gospels, including the richness of the parables of Jesus. The Acts and the Epistles come alive as they are studied in chronological sequence. Valuable insights are gained from a working knowledge of New Testament Greek. This course is not intended to detail every verse of the New Testament, but to provide inspiration, practical principles and help for life, and to develop a biblical base for teaching and preaching. This course, if combined with CHR 221 and 322, meets the U of N Core Curriculum requirement for Bible.
