Hartford Seminary

New Testament Survey (SC-531)

What is the New Testament? Who are its authors? Why these texts? What was going on when they were written? And for whom? How are these texts read today? Does context really matter? This course, which explores the New Testament texts in a broad, survey fashion, will tackle these questions (and many more!). We will read the biblical texts closely, critically, and constructively, and engage in literary and rhetorical inquiry. We will also incorporate several types of biblical methods and lenses that are used in New Testament scholarship such as feminist, womanist, and postcolonial criticism (to name a few).
