New Testament Overview

Almost 2,000 years ago, a Jew walked into a synagogue and was handed the scroll of Isaiah. He found Isaiah 61 and read, "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor." Then, he said something even more shocking: "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing" (Luke 4:14-19). That day changed everything. The New Testament recounts the fulfilling of God's promises made to his people throughout the Old Testament, particularly his promise of a new covenant in his Son Jesus. This class will overview the big picture of each NT book, establish the continuity between the books, highlight the promises from the OT that God has kept to his people, and seek to understand how God would speak to us today through these books.
