New Testament Survey Class

Last night I began teaching a New Testament Survey Class at the Seminary Extension Center located at the Sweetwater Baptist Association office. I have created this page to host the class syllabus and lecture outlines. Additional material will be added as the class continues. There will be a permanent link to this page in the left sidebar of my main page. In addition, the comments section of this post can serve as a place for discussion for students in this class if desired.

  1. This is good. I also teach in a neighboring association’s seminary extension. Right now I am teaching Hermeneutics.

    Have a blessed weekend.

  2. Steve:

    I just took over the directorship of the SE in our association. I look forward to hearing how it all turns out for you.

  3. Hello Sir, I was wondering if I could get the answers to the above lessons on the NT survey class? I would greatly appreciate it as I am looking for some good material to teach a class at our Church. I would not use the material for monetary gain – just implement some of it into the class starting the 1st week of Dec. Thanks and God Bless, Eric
