Are you interested in how to study the New Testament? The New Testament is vitally important to Christians as it depicts the teachings, life, and death of Jesus and the beginnings of Christianity.
At Global University, we offer two in-depth paths to studying the history and writings of the New Testament, and we’d like to share them with you in today’s blog post.
Why Study the New Testament?
The New Testament contains eyewitness accounts of the life and teachings of Jesus. To follow a Christ-led path, we need to familiarize ourselves with what Jesus did and taught while he was on Earth.
While the Old Testament is important as a means to understand God, His creation, and His commandments, the New Testament lays the foundation for Christianity through the account of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

Global University offers a graduate certiﬁcate in New Testament Studies, which includes courses like Acts as History and Theology, Graduate and Intermediate Greek, Pneumatology in Lucan Literature, and more.
Graduate studies certiﬁcates at Global University allow students to get a solid idea of what graduate program coursework is like before leaping into graduate school. All credits are eligible for transfer into the graduate program if the student wishes to pursue that path.

Many of our graduate-level Biblical Studies students plan on preaching to others as pastors, chaplains, or missionaries. They need to know how to interpret Christ’s teachings at an advanced level. In this program, students learn Greek to interpret the New Testament in its original language.
