New Testament Survey

A bare-bones overview of the New Testament
This is a First Level course.


   The purpose of this class is to give you a comprehensive framework on which to hang your studies of the Bible.  This is a bare-bones skeleton which you can then flesh out during your lifetime of study of God's Word in the New Testament.
   When used in conjunction with the Old Testament Survey class, you will have a complete framework for study of the entire Bible.

  • Maintaining Active StatusThis course requires no section tests nor does it require any other communication with us while student is taking this course.  Therefore, because of the lack of any communication, student needs to verify their active status every 30 days by submitting an Active Status Verification form.  If student is taking other courses that do require regular communication with the college, then submission of the Active Status Verification form every 30 days for this NT Survey is not necessary because the communication supplied by the other courses automatically maintains the student's active status.
