Gospels and Acts

Course Description

This the first in a series of three courses that give an overview of the New Testament, and covers Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Acts. The course begins by briefly reviewing the Old Testament in order to show the ways in which the New Testament builds upon Old Testament themes. It addresses issues that the Gospels share in common, and explores key themes and passages in each of the Gospels and in Acts.
