About the course
This course introduces and acquaints the student with the New Testament in general. The New Testament is a literary product of particular times and conditions, which will be studied, and will hopefully lead to a better understanding of applying its words for today. Topics to be explored include: the life and ministry of Jesus, the backgrounds of the Gospels, the birth and times of the Early Church, the ministries of John the Baptist, Peter and Paul, the writings of Paul, the genre and background of the general epistles and Revelation.
This course is part of a dual enrollment program with Colorado Christian University. Students taking this course will potentially follow a modified academic calendar, and will also need to register with CCU (When registering, identify the courses being taught by Imago Dei Academy, and select those)
Students willing to accommodate a more rigorous academic schedule can receive a considerable discount on package courses. Schedule a free consultation with Kepler’s Academic Advisor for more details.
