In this two quarter course, even though we begin with the Old Testament, we will continually keep in mind the whole Bible. In highlighting the themes emphasized by the authors of each book, we will examine questions of authorship, historical context, literary style, and the distinctive contribution of each writing in the salvation history leading to Jesus Christ.
The focus will be the historical background of the New Testament, the nature of the Gospels, and the contribution of each book to our Biblical and Theological understanding of the faith which we proclaim and practice as the church today, the Body of Christ.
