Description: 

The course has two aims: first, to familiarize you with the context and the content of the four canonical Gospels, including information related to the production and subsequent transmission of these writings; and second, to introduce you to the role that different analytical methodologies or conscious "reading strategies" play in the interpretation of these texts. The course will cover redaction, literary, textual, and ideological criticism, as well as the political and social background of the Gospels. There will be both lecture and practical application. Attention will also be given to use of the Library and the Internet for New Testament research. Short written assignments and a final exam.
