CLWR 3320 - New Testament


Surveys the writings of the New Testament in their historical, political, social, and religious context of the Jewish and Greco-Roman worlds in the first century. Discussions to gain familiarity with questions of authorship, genre, historical setting, historical accuracy, use of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, etc. Explores modern academic approaches to the New Testament and its relation to such issues as gender, ethics, identity, the body, politics, ritual, and sacred space, among others. While the course does not adopt a faith-based perspective on the New Testament, we will note the importance of selected texts to modern religious communities.
