NT 501: The Gospels and Acts (3 credits)
The New Testament is the foundation of our knowledge of Jesus Christ, and the clearest and fullest guide to our understanding of God’s master plan for all of creation and history. To study it is to position ourselves to know wisdom, discern truth, and experience the reality of God in our lives as a people. This course is designed to walk students through the first five books of the New Testament and provide insight into their historical, literary and theological character. Students will gain a deeper understanding of these writings, and gain crucial skill in the ability to interpret and apply them to their lives, and to the broader concerns of Christ’s international church. In addition, students will be invited to experience the grace and power of the gospel as they open their hearts to the Spirit’s illuminating and transforming work.
