The course focuses on one section of the New Testament writings. For the purposes of the course, the New Testament has been broken into the Synoptic Gospels, the writings of Paul, the Johannine Gospel and letters, and the General Epistles and Revelation. Within a two-year cycle of the course, at least one offering of the course would cover each of the four sections of the New Testament. A student pursuing the Biblical Studies track of the M.A. in Christian Studies may take the course three times as long as each offering focuses on a different section of the New Testament, but to meet the requirements of the Biblical Studies track a student must take MMOL 631 at least once to provide a more balanced in-depth study of the Bible. Prerequisite: MMOL 533, MMOL 534, or permission of instructor.
