This is the course for which thoughtful Christians around the world like you have clamored. Join one of America’s leading New Testament scholars in thirty-six erudite, lively lectures spanning the entire New Testament.

The Scriptural Experience of a Lifetime

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.

Understandable and interesting
Quality
I would give it an excellent, but disc 2 track 9 has a slight skip. Fr. Just gives a thorough and enlightening description of the New Testament. Very much appreciated his "both/and" slant over the "either/or" attitude. Enjoyed his understandable and interesting presentation. Review by Chuck (Posted on 10/19/2016)

The presenter was articulate and had a great knowledge of the New Testament. He was lively and interesting. The written material provided was detailed, as showed that great thought went into the course. If the presenter were a Saint, and studied the bible with prayer and fasting, the presentation would be more holy than academic, and convert people, increasing their faith, rather than giving them knowledge.
