The texts of the New Testament emerged in the diverse social and complex political context of the Roman Empire. This course examines New Testament and contemporaneous texts within their first- and second-century contexts, pays special attention to archaeological materials of the time, considers how and why these particular texts came to be a canon, and demonstrates contemporary hermeneutical strategies, including feminist and postcolonial. Students will also consider the vibrant and controversial contemporary contexts in which they and others interpret the New Testament.
