I have been teaching at Fuller since the fall of 2008. Fuller students will find
that we have a course page on Moodle.
This course provides an introduction to the study of Acts of the Apostles, the New Testament letters, and the Apocalypse of John, with particular attention given to the life and theology of the Apostle Paul as well as letter writing in the first century. Attention will also be given to the theology of the other New Testament documents reviewed in this course. For each of these New Testament documents, this course will consider introductory issues such as authorship, purpose, structure, date, occasion, and relevant historical backgrounds.
Having successfully completed this course, students will have demonstrated (1) the possession of fundamental knowledge concerning the distinct content, theology, and literary features of Acts-Revelation, (2) a basic understanding of first-century letter writing, (3) the ability to use various critical methods to interpret Acts-Revelation and to develop effective theological arguments, and (4) the ability to draw lessons from those books for the preaching of the gospel today.
