New Testament Theology

The unit New Testament Theology seeks to introduce a Biblical Theology approach to the theology of the New Testament (as distinct from a Systematic Theology approach) by exploring the approaches of key scholars in the field, the major themes in the theology of the New Testament and themes that bridge and unify the Old and New Testaments. As an Advanced Elective unit, it builds on the critical skills formed in pre-requisite study and forms a part of a Specialisation in the Discipline of Biblical Studies in the postgraduate awards.
