1. The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the message and meaning of the New Testament texts.
2. To achieve this goal, the student will be required to read the lectures which follow, and the textbooks listed below.
3. The primary text is the New Testament itself. If the student reads Greek, he or she should read this text. If the student reads English, he or she should make use of a reliable English translation (which is just about anything EXCEPT the Living Bible. Under no circumstances should that book be used by serious students of the Bible). The student is also required to purchase and read, An Introduction to the New Testament, by Raymond Brown (Anchor Bible Reference Library: 1998).
4. During the course of this course, the student will be given reading assignments. These assignments must be completed when assigned. At the conclusion of the course the student will be required to submit a 10 page essay on some aspect of New Testament introduction.
ASSIGNMENT: Read Part 1 of the Textbook by Brown.
