- Have an introductory knowledge of translation techniques, textual criticism, and lexical analysis.
- Know the literary genres of the New Testament and be able to read New Testament books according to their genres.
- Have an introductory knowledge of the historical context of the New Testament.
- Have an idea of the authorship, date, and provenance of each of the New Testament books.
- Be aware of the methods and tools for biblical study, and be able to use them critically.
- Recognize the interrelationship between the New Testament and the Old Testament.
- Have examined key themes in the New Testament as developed throughout the canon.
- Have practiced reading the Bible in community.
- Have practiced critiquing positions fairly and charitably.
- Have practiced developing theology from the New Testament.
- Have practiced thinking and communicating one’s thoughts clearly.
- Be able to enunciate the good news of Jesus
- In faith, will have been formed by the Spirit to love God and neighbour more faithfully than at the beginning of the course.
A bible in a non-paraphrase translation (e.g., NIV, ESV, NRSV, NASB, HCSB, NET, etc. are fine; the Message is not).
Other assigned readings will be available on Populi.
Always bring your Bible to class.
This survey of the New Testament literature places the New Testament within the cultural context of the first century: Greek, Roman, and Jewish. Attention will be given to the best ways to interpret these documents historically and theologically and how the literature of the New Testament can function in the spiritual formation of the church today.

I am currently completing his PhD in Theological Studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, majoring in Old Testament Hebrew, Literature, and Exegesis. My research areas are in hermeneutics and Biblical theology. I had previously taught courses at The King's University College and Nipawin Bible College and pastored for two years at Airdrie Alliance Church. I love teaching the Bible and seeing God's people growing up into Christ.
