This unit introduces students to the history, culture, literature, and theology of the New Testament. Students will study all four Gospels, the Epistles and Revelation examining issues of genre, source, canonization, and translation. Special attention will be paid to the ways the insights of critical biblical scholarship relate to the understanding of these texts in their original context, as Scripture, and their consequent meaning for Christian faith in the contemporary world.
