THE NEW TESTAMENT

An Introductory Course



Fragment from an early copy of the Gospel of Matthew written on papyrus (ca. 250 AD).

The Christian scriptures, known as The Bible, are divided into two major sections: the Old Testament, which pre-dates Christianity and is comprised of the Jewish scriptures, and the New Testament, written early in the Christian era.

This is an entry-level course designed for students who have little or no prior knowledge of the New Testament. The goals of the course are:

a) To provide a general introduction and overview of the New Testament, including its major characters, authors, themes, and background.
b) To lay the foundation for more specialized courses on individual New Testament books and specific topics within Christian theology.

Due to the diverse nature of Wikiversity's participants, every effort has been made to keep these lessons free of personal or sectarian bias. The lessons are not intended to be understood as religious or doctrinal statements, and students should draw their own conclusions with regard to the nature and integrity of the New Testament itself.
