writers are discussed by lecture in the class. Angus' Early Environment
of Christianity is read along with select chapters from
This course is the connecting link between the Testaments. It
shows the world into which Christianity was born. Thus one is
better able to appreciate the New Testament itself as well as to
know the people, the opposing forces, and the later departures,
schisms, and heresies.
383.-The Gospel and the Acts.
The gospels are studied from Broadus' Harmony of the Gospels,
this being simply a parallel arrangement of the text of the
gospels in chronological sequence. Use is made freely of commentaries
on the leading features of the subjects dealt with.
Through special assignments for reading and by lectures the
great subjects and chief problems are studied. A manual on the
life of Jesus is required as parrallel reading. Independent historical
exegesis of various passages is required. The student begins
with the genealogies, the virgin birth, and the ministry of
the forerunner. The early Judean work is followed by the great
body work in Galilee. The closing labors in Judea and Perea
are followed by detailed study of the last week, including the
trial, crucifixion, and resurrection.. While the events are to be
measured in their chronological order, the essential feature of
this course is the study made of the text itself, so as to know the
teaching of Jesus and the facts of his life.

month in the study of Acts. Thus the fulfillment of the promise
of the Spirit and the establishment and early growth of
the church is seen. In this apostolic history we see the disciples
carrying out the commission. The chief advantage will be
the study of the conversions and of the mission work of Paul.
Readings will be required of the best references in the latest
books of archeology throwing light on the places, customs, and
religions of the time. A chain is fixed in which may be fastened
in order the letters to the churches and the other books as well.
Parallel reading of Robertson, Epochs in the Life of Paul, is required.
393.-Letters and Epistles.
Study begins with James, as perhaps the earliest of the epistles,
and continues with them in the order followed in Robertson,
Chronological New Testament. Each letter is outlined. Brief
