NT312 The Gospels and Ancient Pedagogy

Craig A. Evans

| Lexham Press | 2014

Details

The Gospels are 2000-year-old texts, so as you read them it is important to understand the ancient genre they represent. In this course, Evans surveys the Gospels, discusses issues of text criticism, and explains ancient teaching methods so you understand not only what Jesus taught, but how he taught it and why his lessons are recorded as they are across the Gospel texts.
