RELG 2400 - Introduction to the New Testament/Christian Origins - Writing Intensive

Hours: 4
An introductory study of the major theological insights of the twenty-seven writings of the canonical New Testament as well as other manuscripts from early Christian origins. The focus will be on the streams of apostolic tradition that influenced the writers of these works, the communities in which they lived, and the issues that were addressed. In addition, the relationship of the canon as an authoritative collection of sacred books will be compared to extra-canonical writings resulting in an awareness of the variety of methods used to interpret religious texts as well as the diversity reflected in early Christian literature.
Notes: Except for Nursing majors, this course may be used as a substitute for the INST Reflection and Responsibility (INST 2200’s) requirement.
