Students will read the entire New Testament all the way through in New Testament Survey, a 1-credit Bible course. Bible study tools will be used to complete assignments during the year and no one should be nervous about using them because the assignments are simple! Map assignments are part of the course too. These give you a better feel for WHERE things happened. You will also read several books this year to help you grow in your understanding of God’s Word!
Bible Study Reference Tools are going to become familiar to you this year because you will be using them to complete your assignments. You will be using the following tools:
- Bible Concordance
- Bible Atlas
- Greek Interlinear Bible
- Bible Dictionary
- Bible Handbook
- Bible Commentary
You will need the following things for New Testament Survey:
- This e-book printed and put inside a notebook with pockets
