Overview

This insightful course on the arrival of Christ and his kingdom is presented by a team of respected Christian theologians, including Craig A. Evans, Michael W. Goheen, Jeannine K. Brown, Mark L. Strauss, Joel Willitts, and Gerry Breshears. These scholars are well published in biblical interpretation, biblical theology, and the New Testament, and their combined expertise will allow students to gain the clearest insight as they study the New Testament. This course covers new perspectives on the eschatological expectations of first-century Judaism, the birth of the Messiah in each Gospel, and Christ’s kingdom mission.

The activities resource is still under production and will be downloaded once it is completed.
