Required for BA― 3 credits. No Prerequisite.
Again, we make it a point in our Biblical Knowledge courses to steer clear of busy work in favor of essentials and meaningful perspective.
This course allows you to revisit the New Testament Books locking in the background material concerning the authors, their audiences and purposes, as well as relevant cultural and historical information.
You will also add an essential volume to your library, providing unmatched background information for every verse in the New Testament.
