This series of twelve short courses provides a survey of the New Testament. You’ll cover vital information regarding the birth and ministry of Jesus, the ministry of the disciples, the background and context of the New Testament books, and the growth of the early church. Scripture is the primary focus of these studies, but the courses also provide an important backdrop of relevant cultural, geographical, linguistic, and historical contexts in which the texts were written.
For those who want to not only grow in their own faith but help others do the same, the SoulCare series taught by Dr. Larry Crabb is a great resource. Composed of four courses, this series will help you understand the dynamics of spiritual growth and common challenges associated with obtaining and maintaining a closer spiritual walk with Christ.
