New Testament Survey 1 - B201


New Testament Survey I is an ideal way for new and seasoned believers to grasp the history, context, and themes of the New Testament. Covering Matthew through Acts, the course helps students discover the uniqueness of each gospel and the perfect picture they combine to paint of Christ. Students can follow the birth of the faith, from Gabriel's promise to Mary to the Sermon on the Mount, from the Last Supper to the Resurrection, from sending of the Apostles to the conversion of Paul and the first days of the church.
