Introduction to the New Testament and Early Christianity: Texts and Contexts

This course invites learners to engage with the earliest extant written records of believers in Jesus: the narratives and letters that make up the New Testament, employing a variety of approaches used in biblical scholarship today. Students will discover both the consistency and the fascinating diversity that evidently characterised early Christian belief, ritual and practice.
