New Testament Why two? - OT - God calling his people to be his people - NT - God becoming Human through Jesus, and how all of us have become heirs of the promise of God -- Written in Greek - Koine Greek - the common dialect - street Greek When Jesus speaks of the scripture he only has what we call the OT to draw from The Gospels attributed to the names they are given - Evangelion - Good News Q - Quelle - “Source” - likely an oral tradition source Mark written first - mid to late 60’s A.D. Matthew - shows knowledge of the destruction of the Temple - 80-85 A.D. Luke - Author of Acts, which can be thought of as part 1 and part 2 Synoptic Gospels - “through the same lens” - very many similarities John - written around 95 A.D. Oldest book of NT - 1 Thessalonians - year 50 or 51 A.D. Most of the NT letters are older than the Gospels Infallible vs Inerrancy Infallible - There are no conflicts in scriptures, all apparently conflicted passages have to be understood at another level Inerrancy - Scripture when read as a whole, will not lead you into error even if certain scriptures are in conflict, when read in faith Jesus’ Teaching - Parables - Wonder Stories - walking on water, healing, casting out demons - Eschatology - Last - the theology of last things - John and Jesus speak of the nearness of the Kingdom of God - imminent Resurrection - Jesus dies, is buried, rises, appears to multiple people. But there is no description of how Jesus is raised The Lordship of Jesus Christ - God has become one with us - Charigma
