Gain fresh insights into the New Testament in this life-changing course.

Perhaps no other text has so greatly influenced Western civilization as the New Testament. And yet, it also remains widely misunderstood—even among lifelong Christians.

Now, The New Testament: A Bible Study Course answers your most important questions about its twenty-seven books. Taught by Fr. Nicholas King, a longtime Oxford lecturer and Bible translator, these 36 engaging lectures give you access to modern scholarship on the New Testament. Fr. King’s original translations breathe new life into the words you have so often heard and studied, accurately conveying the mood of the original documents.

After a fascinating general introduction to the New Testament, you will take a fresh look at the Pauline epistles. You will enjoy four lectures on each of the Gospels before looking at Acts of the Apostles, the general epistles, and Revelation. Finally, you will consider the important themes of Christ’s Resurrection, divine inspiration, and the necessity of the Old Testament.

Above all, you will gain a fuller sense of Jesus as a devout Jew who was telling the old story of God and the People of God in a new way. And as Jesus preached, the gospel message is open to all.

This scriptural journey will fill you with the excitement and freshness that pervades the writings of the New Testament. Embark on it today.

Summer Survey: July 2017
Father King is a great lecturer. He is very knowledgeable with a very pleasant delivery. His course has helped me more than any other source in improving my understanding of the New Testament. He is gifted at explaining concepts and does so with a sense of humor which makes it most enjoyable.

Winter Survey: January 2017
It gave a very good introduction and summary of the New Testament Books. But this is not the only course I have enjoyed. among those I have listened and watched so far. Much appreciated are The Old Testament, The Mass, The history of the Mass, The Psalms (Both) .... Review by Charles Carver UK (Posted on 1/19/2017)
