Course ID: HUM 2203

This course offers an overview of the entirety of the New Testament. Students will first experience the story of the Gospels, which cover the life, teachings, and miracles of Jesus, followed by his death and resurrection. Throughout the course, readers will be asked important questions about Jesus’ character. For instance, did he treat people well, or did he take advantage of them? Was Jesus an honest person, or was he lying about his relationship to God? Did Jesus deserve to die the way he did–embarrassed, naked, and abandoned by his friends–or was he the kind of person who deserved a better ending to his life? This course also examines the movement of Jesus’ followers as described in the book of Acts. The early Christians’ traits of heroism, love, and perseverance tell an incredible story by themselves; but it is all the more astonishing because the authors continually attribute such character qualities to the work of Jesus among them. Is it possible that Jesus was really risen? And could he have actually changed the hearts and minds of his followers? Perhaps most importantly, is such internal transformation possible for Jesus’ followers today? Lastly, this course will explore the canonical writings of the early Christians—the Epistles and Revelation—in order to determine some basic Christian teachings. How does the Christian faith affect the lives of Jesus’ followers? How does Christian transformation play out in personal situations in the real world? This New Testament course will wrestle with these questions and more as it seeks to introduce students to Jesus.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Examine the cultural, literary, and theological context of the New Testament, especially its relationship to the Old Testament.
  • Compare and contrast New Testament culture with one’s own culture.
  • Discover the sequence of events during Jesus’ lifetime and during the start of the early church.
  • Discover the teachings that Jesus and his church emphasized in early church canonical writings.
  • Interpret the events of the Gospels and Acts in light of God’s overarching plan for humanity.
  • Show how the New Testament is still applicable to and relevant for one’s life today.
