New Testament Survey Overview

BY REV. WILLIS C. NEWMAN, Ph.D., D.Min.

Formerly titled: New Testament for the South Pacific

INTRODUCTION

The purpose of this brief work is to give you a basic overview of the New Testament. Included in this birds-eye-view are general facts regarding the Bible as a whole and the New Testament in particular. I also introduce some basic concepts about interpretation and canon. 

From there I go into areas of the historical and cultural context where the New Testament took its form. It is important to anchor the words of the New Testament into the events, history, social structures, culture, and places of this world. 

I give a basic background and outline of each of the books of the New Testament. Included in the background is the author of the book, the immediate intended audience, occasion of writing, and the date and place it was written. There is a selected list of over 90 excellent evangelical resources at the end. The ebook is about 118 compact pages in all.

An outline of the life of Christ is given, the ministry of the early disciples explored, and the history of early church expansion is unfolded. 

The text is written in outline form, as it consists of my New Testament lecture notes. It may seem somewhat choppy, but it boils down the essential facts of the New Testament.
