New Testament Biblical Theology

The Drama of Redemption:
From New Creation to Consummation

A Survey/Biblical Theology of the New Testament
Autumn 2019 – Spring 2020
Rev. Charles R. Biggs, Th.M.

  Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying,
  “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand;
  repent and believe in the gospel.”

  For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction,
  that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures
  we might have hope.
