Historical Background of the New Testament

The course is open for registration

Course Description

This course is an introduction to the social, political, religious and cultural world of the Second Temple Period and the backgrounds of the New Testament. The course looks at selected issues that provide context for the study of the life of Jesus and the world of the early church.  Some of the topics addressed are Temple, Sanhedrin and Synagogue, Greco-Roman Religions and Philosophies, Jewish Sects, Rabbinic Literature and the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Course Structure

The lessons will be held through a Zoom format, consisting of lectures and interactive discussions. There will be 10 three hour (with breaks) live zoom lectures. Recordings will be available to registered students to watch multiple times during the time of the course and for six weeks after it ends. It won’t be possible to download video lectures to personal PC.

We cannot ensure the quality of zoom recordings should technical failures occur. We also cannot guarantee that all parts will be recorded. Therefore, it is NOT possible to register for recordings only. Students need to participate in live lectures.

Course Goals

  1. To learn about the political, social and religious world from which both Judaism and Christianity were birthed.

  2. To clarify and illuminate the life and ministry of Jesus and the world-view of the New Testament writers.

  3. To provide the student with tools that will enhance their study of the New Testament.

Learning Outcome

After completing this course, the student should be able to:

  1. Use background information in an appropriate way to a better understanding of the New Testament and its message.

  2. View the teaching and ministry of Yeshua in relation to Judaism of his day and discuss New Testament passages in light of relevant passages in early Jewish sources.
