Introduction to New Testament History and Literature
I'm going to start listening to this lecture series from Yale University and would like to share the idea with others who want to get an in-depth introduction to the writings of the New Testament. This course does not consider the NT as "scripture," but explores it as literature.

Description

(RLST 152) This course provides a historical study of the origins
of Christianity by analyzing the literature of the earliest Christian
movements in historical context, concentrating on the New Testament.
Although theological themes will occupy much of our attention, the
course does not attempt a theological appropriation of the New Testament
as scripture. Rather, the importance of the New Testament and other
early Christian documents as ancient literature and as sources for
historical study will be emphasized. A central organizing theme of the
course will focus on the differences within early Christianity (-ies).


This course was recorded in Spring 2009.

He gives this Bible Quiz...How well will you do?

(FYI...the computer scored me 9 out of 10 correct, but according to the discussion in the answer key, I was correct and the computer was wrong...so 10 out of 10 for Pastor Erxomai!!!

Downloaded this for later listening.

Erx...have listed to almost all the podcasts for Living After Faith...have managed to get past the annoyance of Miss Giddy herself and have enjoyed most of the podcasts. It's interesting to see learn how hard it is to move past religion when it has been such a huge part of someone's life. That's not my experience, but I am trying to understand.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF
