ABOUT

In this module we look at the Hebrew influences on the authors of the New Testament. What were the main factors in Hebrew identity that these authors claimed were fulfilled in the gospel? How does this Hebrew background renew the way we view John, Paul and Peter as they write to the Church in the 1st century. In particular we look at the influence of Genesis 1 and 2 and the exodus of Israel from Egypt and their return from Babylon as the main themes through which we understand the gospel message.
