The study of the New Testament fires the heart with awe and wonder. In it we read of God’s boundless love in sending His Son to redeem all who believe in His atoning death and resurrection. The Gospels describe in detail what Jesus said and did while on earth. The Epistles explain in depth the spiritual implications of who Christ was and what He did. Finally, in the book of Revelation, we read of how Christ will bring history to an end for His glory. Understanding the big picture of the New Testament and its individual books are essential for the growing Christian.
In this course, Dr. Craig Blomberg explains the interpretive frameworks we can use to better understand the meanings of the parables. Beginning with the parable of “The Prodigal Son”, you will explore dozens of the stories Jesus told about the Kingdom of God and what it means to follow Him.
