Reading and Interpreting the New Testament

Led by Dr Sarah Harris, Carey Baptist College

Dr Sarah Harris lectures in New Testament Studies. Her PhD thesis, The Davidic Shepherd King in the Lukan Narrative is forthcoming in the library of New Testament Studies series (T & T Clark).

This three day course is an introduction to reading and interpreting the New Testament. It explores the key genres if writing found in the Bible from Matthew to Revelation and then considers how to read each contextually and interpret them for today. The biblical skills required for interpretation and exegesis writing are also covered, aiming to provide a sound basis for further biblical study.

For those completing the course for credit, further online study and assessment will be required.
