Course Details

REL 227 Overview

This course invites the students into a study of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), which are the heart of the New Testament portion of the Christian Bible. This course will study these diverse portraits of Jesus of Nazareth and his teaching as products of their original historical and religious setting. To that end, some historical critical methods will be used in this study. Although the primary focus of this course is the scholarly study of the Gospels, the texts will also be examined for their contemporary application in Christianity and beyond.
