CLA 162 History and Literature of the New Testament (REL 162)

An introduction to the social-historical study of the writings that came to be the New Testament of the Christian churches.  We will survey the social, political, and religious contexts of the Jewish and Greco-Roman worlds of the first century, the actions and teachings of Jesus fo Nazareth, and the missionary activity of Paul of Tarsus.  We will study most of the texts in the New Testament, as well as other ancient Jewish and early Christian writings to learn about the development of the various beliefs and practicies of these first Christian communities.
