New Testament Readings

The following is a tentative syllabus for our New Testament course. We will augment with commentaries, etc. We will modify specific assignments as appropriate.

In preparing each assignment, please consult whatever secondary works and commentaries that you may have, and bring such works with you to class. We will do more than merely translate in class.
