Unit code: BN3001L
This unit builds on foundational skills for biblical study and familiarises students with exegetical methods in studying the Synoptic Gospels. Students engage with central issues in Gospel studies—including the history of the gospel tradition, source analysis, provenance, literary design, and distinctive theologies—through a critical study of Matthew and Mark. Students also learn about the broader cultural and sociological contexts of gospel texts. Contemporary missional and pastoral implications will also be explored.
