This course surveys the message of the New Testament, both at the
individual book level and at the canonical level. This course is an attempt to present,
book by book, the message of Jesus Christ through his apostles. That is, students will
grasp the main themes and overall message of each individual book of the New
Testament as it bears witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Emphasis will be given to
considering the author, audience, structure, and major themes of each New Testament
book. Students will be able to show how the entire New Testament bears witness to
Jesus the Messiah as the Lord of the universe, the fulfillment of all of God’s promises,
and the Savior and Satisfier of his people.
