How to Get Through the New Testament in an Hour

The New Testament is a lot to understand! Twenty-seven books, eight different authors (at least), four different biographies of Jesus—how do we make sense of it all?

Join Dr. John Bergsma, professor of Theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, for a short “guided tour” through the New Testament.

Dr. Bergsma focuses on four main authors—Matthew, Luke, Paul, and John—who together give us almost 90 percent of the New Testament. If we can just understand these four, we will get the “big idea” of the New Testament.

Dr. Bergsma's approach can be adapted for a variety of teaching situations: RCIA, religious education, adult faith formation, and parish small group meetings.
