New Testament

Chapel of the Ascension, JerusalemThis degree programme is for those fascinated by the New Testament and who want to study it in depth.

You will have opportunity to learn about and explore the theology and ethics of New Testament texts, to study the language in which they were written, to investigate the diverse religious, political and cultural contexts in which they were shaped and to consider the beliefs that inspired their authors.

The New Testament is central to the study of Christian theology but has also been influential in literature, the arts, ethics and a host of other disciplines.

This specialised degree programme offers you the opportunity to engage in serious scholarly study of the early Christian writings and their world and to think about why they had (and continue to have) such an impact in subsequent years.
