Overview

Survey the structures and purpose of New Testament theology with renowned Bible scholar and author Dr. Douglas Moo. This expansive course looks at key concepts that emerge from the different books of the New Testament, and explains the overall message God has for the church. Dr. Moo examines the diversity of the New Testament writings, stressing the importance of reading each book in its own context, as well as the unity that arises from their divine inspiration. As he says in the course:

I understand the Bible, then, to be a divine–human book that speaks to every generation. This is its very nature. Because it’s a divine book, inspired by God, there is a unity to it that transcends time and place. But because it’s a human book, because the Bible was written by particular human individuals, it has an undeniable historical context that we have to recognize. Not to recognize that context will be to miss its meaning again and again. But the Bible is a book that speaks to every generation, and that inevitably requires that we engage in the hermeneutical task—the task of trying to understand how this ancient Word of God can relevantly address the current church.

With over 30 years of New Testament research and teaching experience, Dr. Moo is the ideal guide, helping you bridge the gap between what ancient writers meant and what the New Testament means for God’s people today.

About Douglas J. Moo

Dr. Douglas Moo teaches New Testament at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. For over 20 years, his ministry was based at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His academic interests revolve around the interface of exegesis and theology. Dr. Moo seeks to model to students a rigorous approach to the Greek text that always asks the “so what” questions of ultimate significance and application. The Pauline and general epistles have been his special focus within the NT canon.

In the next few years, he will be writing commentaries on Galatians and Hebrews, a Pauline theology, and a theological and practical book on creation care.

Dr. Moo has also been active in his local church, serving as elder most years, teaching and preaching to the church, and conducting home Bible studies. Because of his New Testament expertise, he has served on the Committee on Bible Translation—the group of scholars charged with revising the text of the NIV and with producing the TNIV.
