Over 2,000 years, the New Testament has profoundly shaped the lives and faith of billions. Until now, though, covering the entire 27-book New Testament in one experience has been nearly impossible. This comprehensive course introduces you to the contents and historical contexts of all the books and letters of the New Testament. Explore each book’s perspective on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, as well as the beliefs, practices, and problems of the early Christian communities.
Discover New Depths of Meaning
Unearth the key literary features and theological emphases of each writing to gain much more as you continue to explore these biblical texts on your own.
This course is divided into three main sections: the Four Gospels and Acts of the Apostles, the letters written by and/or attributed to St. Paul, and the rest of the New Testament writings (Hebrews, the Catholic Epistles, Revelation), as well as a few non-canonical writings. This course gives you a broad overview of the New Testament, and it is designed to inspire you to read the biblical texts more often and with greater understanding. It will also aid you in studying the individual books in greater detail, and it serves as a helpful complement other to Now You Know Media’s other courses on specific books.
