The New Testament: The Good News of Jesus Christ
The purpose of this course is to provide an in-depth study of the New Testament. Since Jesus Christ's life, death, and Resurrection are at the heart of the Christian mystery, this course begins by looking at the four complementary but unique portraits of Jesus that are found in the four Gospels. Next, it traces the spread of the Gospel as told in Acts and the Letters. The course also considers the challenges faced by the early Church that emerge through a careful reading of the New Testament Letters and the Book of Revelation. Additionally, it will look closely at what the followers of Jesus in the early Church proclaimed about him and explore the historical, religious and cultural world of Jesus' time. Ultimately, the course will guide students in seeing the relevance of the Gospel message for the world today.
In addition to the complete text of the print book, the iBook Edition, and the enhanced interactive e-Books, add the following features:
- In-text links to official, online versions of Scripture, the Catechism, and Church documents so that students can study quotes from the text in their original context.
- In-text links to online biographies of all the saints mentioned in the student text.
- Photo galleries that explore topics in the text.
- Presentations that review key concepts.
- Self-correcting quizzes that assess the student’s mastery of the content in each part of the text.
