The diverse writings of the New Testament emerged in the variegated social, religious and political contexts of the Roman empire and are written by the followers of a Jewish teacher who was killed by Roman imperial power. We will discuss major analytical tools and disciplinary methods for analyzing and interpreting these texts and their socio-historical worlds. The course will also explore how these ancient texts still shape contemporary cultural and religious discourses and are read differently in different socio-political and religious locations. Note: Course has group meetings from 1 to 2 pm.
