  • New Testament Survey
  • Most biblical New Testament studies focus on theological views. This study focuses on the reality of the people who wrote and received these books, and what motivated that writing. This study will have a greater emphasis on geography and history, and details in the text that help understand the authors and recipients. The books are studied in historical order rather than in the standard biblical order. The goal of the course is to understand the content and context of the New Testament books, as well as the context and motive of the authors in writing them. A primary premise of the course is that the books of the New Testament are reliable records, which is evidenced internally and externally, both in history and archaeology. This course is divided into three sections, one offered each quarter as follows: 1. NT Survey I – Covers the first (in the order written) ten books of the New Testament (before any escalation of Jewish-Roman conflict). 2. NT Survey II – Covers the next seventeen (in order written) books of the New Testament (after the Jewish-Roman conflict escalated). 3. NT Survey III – An in-depth look at the book of Acts and the corresponding events and books of the New Testament. The textbook for the first two quarters is “The Story of the New Testament” written by the instructor, William (Bill) Newkirk. The textbook for the third quarter is "Actsplus," also written by the instructor. Each of these books will be supplied by the instructor for a cost of $5 each, made payable to the instructor at the first class.
