New Testament Survey
Bible study—with an emphasis on careful teaching (2 Timothy 2:15)—constitutes nearly 40% of the AIM course. This survey course introduces the student to the world of the New Testament, from the historical and geographical background to the culture of the first century to the formation of the New Testament itself. Units: Synoptic Gospels, John, Acts, the Letters of Paul, the General Epistles, Revelation, and N.T. chronology. In addition to studying a conservative N.T. textbook, the student will read the entire N.T. He will also learn how to deploy 100 useful N.T. passages.
GOAL OF THE COURSE
To comprehend the "big picture" of the NT and its world.
