About this course

New Testament Foundations I & II

The New Testament contains some of the most influential documents ever written. NT Foundations I & II survey the entire contents of the NT in two semesters. The student will be drawn into the world of the NT and encouraged to interact with the themes and message contained within each piece of writing in the NT. In so doing, students can better examine the implications of the NT’s message for Christians and for the Church today.

NT Foundations I & II will be taught using a two-volume introduction to the New Testament entitled Exploring the New Testament, and jointly published by IVP and SPCK.


This Course

NT Foundations I (NT101) is a general introduction to the Four Gospels and Acts. Students can expect a survey of major interpretive approaches, as well as a consideration of historical and cultural issues. These include the Synoptic Problem and the literary relationship of the Gospels; the problem of the historical Jesus; the genre, historical setting, message and structure of each of the Gospels and Acts.

It will be based on David Wenham and Steve Walton, Exploring the New Testament Volume One: The Gospels and Acts (2d ed; Downers Grove: IVP and London: SPCK, 2011), (“ENT 1”) which may be purchased from BGST Book Corner.
