Who is Jesus? (NT II)
An introduction to a portion of the New Testament: 1 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Romans, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Peter, Hebrews and Revelation. The guiding question of the course is: ‘Who is Jesus?’ with significant emphasis placed on the New Testament authors’ understanding of Jesus as the one who saves. The course approaches the question through a variety of optics: a close reading of the biblical texts, attention to historical context, especially as revealed through art and artifacts, and the reception of the texts in the art and life of the church. This course functions as the second half of the Wycliffe introduction to the New Testament, or it can be taken on its own.
