BIBL 511 New Testament Foundations I


New Testament Foundations I and II offer students an academic introduction to the New Testament and related documents. Foundations I introduces students to the Gospels, Acts and the Johannine Letters (which letters are studied in conjunction with the Gospel of John), while Foundations II introduces students to the Pauline and pseudo-Pauline writings, as well as Hebrews, 1 Peter, James, and Revelation. The emphasis in both courses is on the historical meaning of these documents as the beginning of the Christian theological tradition.
