RES 296M Topic: The Gospels of the New Testament

Course Description: This course offers an in-depth study of the Gospel of Mark, Matthew, Luke and John with an approach that seeks to situate these texts within their original historical, literary, and religious contexts.

Attention to the sources, audiences, the nature of multiple forms of oral communication within the written texts, and the perspective of each author will be emphasized. There are no prerequisites for this course.
