|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||30 credits (15 ECTS credits)|
This course will engage with a significant area of development within the field of New Testament Studies, by means of close and sustained evaluation of a particular work, or by a thematically arranged series of discussions. The course will position these recent developments in relation to their backgrounds, considering the contexts that have given rise to fresh approaches, and will evaluate the developments themselves. The course will therefore allow students to develop an awareness of the major questions that currently dominate New Testament Studies and their backdrop in the history of the discipline, as well as helping them to identify ongoing challenges and prospects for future research. The specific development under consideration will vary in each delivery of the course, but notice of the topic will be given through the programme director.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
