Reading the New Testament takes us into a different world--an ancient world with a variety of cultures that inform the story and the biblical text. The writings of the New Testament reflect the history and influence of the Jewish, Greek, and Roman cultures, and knowing the context of those cultures can help us read and understand the text more clearly. Knowing how people lived, thought, and interacted in that first century world can help us better understand how the New Testament can speak into the 21st century world.

In this special Lenten Study, Pastor Bob Kaylor will take us deep into the history and background of the New Testament world through a series of interactive lectures including video, maps, and photos. If you love history and the Bible, you will love this Lenten series! Here's a guide to the series topics:

March 4 - The History of the Jews Between the Persian and Roman Empires
March 11 - The Jewish Context of Jesus and the Early Church
March 18 - After the Temple: Judaism and Christianity in Transition
March 25 - The Formation of the New Testament Canon
April 1 - The Letter to the Romans: A Case Study in Historical Context
April 8 - The Early Church: A "Patient Ferment"

The recommended reference book for the study is The New Testament In Its World by N.T. Wright and Michael Bird. While we will not use the book in the study, it is a great reference for you to have for your own self-study. Join us for six Wednesday nights of soup and study!
