The New Testament is essential for Christian mission and ministry, containing foundational testimony about Jesus’s life, death and resurrection, and the earliest accounts of Christian belief and experience. As Scripture, the New Testament continues to shape Christian faith and practice in the contemporary world. On this course, Reading the New Testament, you will be introduced to the literature, history and message of the New Testament. This course provides you with tools to enable you to read the New Testament in its context and to use it appropriately in mission and ministry today.

Reading the New Testament is an online course, with learning elements including written content, short videos, discussion boards and online exercises. You will also be encouraged to pursue independent study, using resources provided, to reflect on your development in ministry and prepare for an assessment.

I feel the unit walked us through the gospels and provided areas for deeper thought. The unit also covered books in the New Testament which would not be as popular, giving us insight into their content and helping to gain an appetite for deeper study in them.

This course will be available from 1 October 2022, and will take three months to complete. As part of the course, students will need to attend an online half-day of seminars on Saturday 19 November.
