NEW TESTAMENT INTERPRETATION.
NEW TESTAMENT (English)
Af.-Inter-biblical History. This part begins with the close of
Old Testament history, where Old Testament As. leaves off. By
Syllabus outline an orderly study is made of the entire period, particularly
of the land of Palestine. Besides references to Josephus
and encyclopediae there is short connected reading of political
changes through Persian, Greek, Maccabean, and Roman periods
up to the beginning of the gospel age. Considerable consideration
is given to the apochrypha and other extracanonical books
as to the religious, social, and political conditions. The rise of
the Jewish sects is traced. The "Kingdom of God" and the
teaching of apocalytic writers are discussed by lecture in the class.
Angus' Early Environment of Christianity is read along with
select chapters from other manuals.
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. Same as Bible 373. Three hours a week.
Aw.-The Gospels 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
