This four-course bundle takes a closer look at the Jesus of the New Testament. In NT390 Jesus as Rabbi, you’ll explore the words of Christ through the context of his conversations with other Jews, and compare them to rabbinical teaching of the first century. In NT201 The Cultural World of the New Testament you’ll examine the environment of early Christians as they broke the rules of society for the sake of the gospel. In NT252 Parables of Jesus you’ll learn how to interpret the parables of Jesus, taking into account their images, themes, and applications for modern readers. And in NT313 Jesus and the Witness of the Outsiders you’ll focus on what extrabiblical sources say about Jesus, what they reveal about the life of Christ, and how Jesus was perceived by early non-Christian witnesses.
