Discover the World of the New Testament

Embark on a fascinating journey into the world of Jesus and the first Christians. Your Bible reading will come to life in new ways as you engage the background and history of the New Testament and discover how the gospel of Jesus was originally received and understood:

  • Why did Jewish leaders think Jesus’ teachings were so controversial?
  • What set Christianity apart from Roman and Greek pagan religions?
  • What was life like for early Christians living in the Roman Empire?
  • Why does the New Testament call Jesus “the son of God,” “lord,” and “savior”?
