Introducing the New Testament—available in Semester 2
If you are looking to:
- ignite curiosity through an extended study of the New Testament
- be motivated and supported by participating in an active learning community without leaving home
- experience studying at ALC first hand
then you could be interested in ALC's audit* option for Semester 2 which commences on 29 July.
This unit, also available for credit as part of the Diploma in Theology or the Graduate Diploma in Theology, is an introduction to the diverse writings of the New Testament and can be accessed anywhere. Classes are held on Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the semester from 12.30–2.00 pm CST (1–2.30 pm EST) and are live-streamed and accessed via Microsoft Teams.
You will become more familiar with the content and themes of the New Testament by reading it in its entirety. Additionally you will engage with the texts in their original historical, literary, social, religious and theological contexts. The unit introduces issues in interpretation, including literary genre, the relationship between form and function, and methods of study. It also considers the formation of the New Testament canon and its textual history.
Age Pension cardholders may commit to auditing this unit for six weeks at a time. To receive the special pensioner discount, use the code NTSENIORS when registering.
* Auditing a unit within ALC’s higher education programs enables you to participate in a class but you don't complete assignments and you won't receive any credit towards a qualification.
