New Testament Introduction investigates the formation and content of the NT. The formative elements include the various backgrounds (historical, cultural, religious, linguistic, etc.) that influenced how the NT authors lived, what they believed, and how they composed the NT. When it comes to content, NTI surveys the broad genres of the NT (vs. book-by-book introductions) in order to demonstrate the uniform presentation of Jesus as the fulfillment and culmination of God’s work of redemption and OT promise. Validating this uniform presentation is reinforced by our understanding of the disciplines of NT intertextuality and NT Biblical theology.
