Explore the events which shaped the world and think of those who encountered Jesus while he ministered on earth. Discover the Gospels, Acts and the New Testament Letters in a fresh way as we learn about the culture of the 1st century world. Reflect on how ancient sites in both Israel and the wider Mediterranean world help us to understand the message of Jesus and his followers, particularly Paul, who spread the message of Jesus in the Greco-Roman world. This course will add greater depth to your reading of the New Testament as you gain an understanding of the cultures in which it occurred.
