Exploring the New Testament will introduce you to the historical and cultural background of the New Testament world. This will help you answer questions such as, “Why did the Jews hate the Samaritans?” and “Was the Bethlehem Innkeeper a heartless businessman or a kind host?”
Exploring the New Testament will give you interpretive tools to use in studying the New Testament. This will help you answer questions such as, “How do we decide which part of Acts applies to the Church today and which parts were unique to the 1st Century?” and “Since Paul teaches that we are justified by faith alone and James teaches that faith without works is dead, how do those two ideas fit together?”
Exploring the New Testament will give you a theological framework for studying the New Testament. This will help you answer questions such as, “What does the letter of Galatians say to legalists… and to liberals?” and “If we were predestined for adoption by Jesus Christ and chosen before the foundation of the world, how do we understand the doctrine of free will?” These and many other questions will be explored in this thought-provoking course.
Exploring the New Testament is a study of its incredible collection of twenty-seven inspired books, including the memoirs of disciples like Matthew and John, an historical survey of the church in Acts, the organized treatises of Hebrews and Romans, the more casual personal letters of Philemon and II and III John, the encouraging letter of Philippians, the severe rebukes of Galatians and Corinthians, and then that grand apocalyptic book of Revelation, revealing God’s great plan for human history.
