“Understanding the New Testament” Study Begins October 3rd
“Understanding the New Testament” is an exciting new study that will focus on understanding the order in which the 27 books of the New Testament were written. Beginning on Tuesday, October 3rd, “Understanding the New Testament” is designed to provide a perspective on how each writing addressed the questions and concerns of its congregation and, through these writings, how the early church developed.
“Understanding the New Testament” will be offered on Tuesday mornings from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in room F151, located on the 1st floor of the Sheldon Family Life Center. Led by Pete Fleming, this 24-week course will break for 6 weeks during the Advent season, and then resume on January 9, 2024. No books will be required for the course, although class participants will be encouraged to read the books of the New Testament that are to be discussed each week.
Each class will consist on a 30-minute review of that week’s New Testament writing, followed by a 30-minute video by Professor David Brakke, Chair in the History of Christianity at The Ohio State University. Each class will conclude with a discussion of the impact of that week’s writing on the early church and on the church today.
