Interpreting the New Testament

Semester 2
Night Class
Available Online

This unit provides the foundational unit in New Testament studies and serves as a pre-requisite for all other BN units. The unit is based on inductive exegetical workshops that introduce a range of exegetical methods, together with readings and lectures on the genres, background and interpretation of the New Testament. The exegetical exercises sample the Synoptic Gospels, Fourth Gospel, Letters of Paul, and Revelation, in preparation for a final exegetical essay on a text in Matthew, taking into account any Synoptic parallels and [at postgraduate level] the use of Old Testament traditions. [Undergraduate] students who qualify to take the unit at second level will be expected to explore hermeneutics and exegetical methods more thoroughly, and in particular the relationship between the Old and New Testaments.
