Melton B. Winstead, Ph.D.
Module 2 Course(s) (May 9th-14th |Mon. – Fri. 6:00pm – 10:30pm | Sat. 8:00am-4:30pm)
A survey of the life and teachings, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ as presented in the four Gospels and the spread of Christianity as recorded in the Book of Acts. Introductory material such as authorship, date, and the background of each book will be included.
The objectives for this course are an attempt to strike a balance between three converging aims of study at SES: (a) the aims of the seminary itself for this course (see the SES Catalog);
(b) the aims of the instructor for this course; and
(c) the aims of the student for the course.
Hopefully, through a cooperative venture of each of us and the help of the Holy Spirit, the course will come close to meeting this convergence of learning objectives.
A. The Professor’s personal aims for the course are as follows:
- By the end of the course, the student will come to a greater understanding of and appreciation for the Person and work of our Lord Jesus Christ, the One who lives on the pages of the New Testament.
- By the end of the course, the student will come to a greater understanding of and appreciation for God’s glorious New Covenant Kingdom, especially as it is at work in our world today.
- By the end of the course, the student will come to a greater understanding of and commitment to God’s Great Commission, the primary calling of the Church of Christ today. NT 501 New Testament Survey Page 2
