Course Start Date
This course presents a panoramic view of the chief events, prominent characters, main themes, traditions, outstanding teachings, and historical and geographical cultural contexts of the New Testament. The student will grasp the New Testament as a whole and each book as a unit, building a strong understanding of the Gospels, the early church and the return of Christ so that the student can implement these principles into their own life and ministry.
1) Read through assigned New Testament books and be able to discuss the key concepts, characters, and major events in class (biblical).
2) Know to whom each book was written, the purpose of it and the general content it contains.
3) Design an action plan to implement key New Testament principles in his or her area of ministry based on the New Testament church's model of ministry. Submit online by end of week 5 (ministry).
