REL 202 Christian Scriptures

In this class, we read and study the Christian Scriptures, also known as the New Testament. Besides looking at the various genres of literature in the New Testament, we examine the central figures of Jesus, Paul, and the early Christian Church. Of particular interest in this course are the Jewish and Roman cultural, religious, and political contexts in which the Christian Scriptures were born. [H,V]
