Early portraits of Jesus are found both inside and outside the New Testament. This course introduces the four canonical gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – and gives the opportunity for detailed study especially of the Gospel of Matthew. But it also introduces several of the later gospels, which were never included in the New Testament but which enjoyed widespread popularity within some groups. Beside detailed exegesis, the theological issues of early Christian orthodoxy and orthopraxy will be treated, as well as recently raised questions of lost Christianities and Scriptures. This course is essential in understanding early Christianity. Course guide
