Understanding the New Testament authors, their methods of communication, and their historical contexts, is the first step before any application of these texts may take place. This course gives students an appreciation for the New Testament as an early and developing witness to a faith in Christ. The focus of the course is to acquire skills to do textual exegesis and understand historical factors that shaped the New Testament’s origins.
