Overview

This concise guide to understanding the world in which the New Testament was written, is a MUST read for the lay minister, pastor, and church leader. This concise guide will help one gain an understanding of the world in which the New Testament was written. In Part One, the political world, the social and economic world, the religious world, Judaism, and the Jewish background of the New Testament from 200 B.C. - A.D. 200, will be examined. In Part Two, the Gospel records of the life of Christ will be considered. This section will examine the meaning of the name "New Testament" and it's content, the Gospels as literary works, the Gospel of Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John, as well as a survey of the life of Christ will be discussed by examining the records of the New Testament documents as recorded by the Apostles. In Part Three, the records of the early church will be examined. This study will review the establishment of the early church from Acts 1:1 to 8:3, the time of transition of the church, the gentile church and Pauline mission as seen in Acts 11:19 to 15:35, the Pauline program found in Acts 15:36 to 21:16, and the Pauline imprisonment in Acts 21:17 to 28:31. In Part Four, this study will examine the problems in the early church, and will consider the pastoral epistles (The Institutional Church), the suffering church in I Peter, the book of Hebrews and the break from Judaism, the peril of heresies that the early church had to deal with found in II Peter, the book of Jude, and John I, II, and III. John's Apocalyptic Revelation of Jesus Christ that took place on the Island of Patmos, and three Millennium views will be considered as we come to the close of the New Testament. In Part Five, the canon and text of the New Testament will be examined. The formation of the canon, the texts, and the transmission of the New Testaments will be reviewed. Lastly, in Part Six, Lantz will summarize the world of the New Testament, the Gospels and the life of Christ, the records of the early church and it's problems, and the transmission of the canonical records of the New Testament. This concise Biblical Survey of the New Testament is a MUST READ for new believers, church leaders, ministers, pastors, and students of the Bible.
