This seven week online course for Catholic school teachers offers an introduction to the New Testament.
We will explore the New Testament from several points of view:
-The world within the text, “What is the text saying? What was going on?”
-The world behind the text, a historical look at the world where Jesus grew up. “What were the events that may have influenced him?”
-The world In front of the text - our culture. “Where does the Gospel fit into my life? Is it still relevant?”
The central focus of this course is to explore and reflect on the Word of God, our call to evangelize, and to develop a deeper relationship with God through the Sacred Scriptures. The course is designed to be interactive through activities and discussion forums and opportunities for questions and comments. Since we are all teachers, whether by profession or not, I encourage you to share your thoughts and ideas as we encounter Jesus through his words, his teachings, and His invitation to the Kingdom of God.
