(RLST 152) This course provides a historical study of the origins of Christianity by analyzing the literature of the earliest Christian movements in historical context, concentrating on the New Testament. Although theological themes will occupy much of our attention, the course does not attempt a theological appropriation of the New Testament as scripture. Rather, the importance of the New Testament and other early Christian documents as ancient literature and as sources for historical study will be emphasized. A central organizing theme of the course will focus on the differences within early Christianity (-ies). This course was recorded in Spring 2009.

New Testament Course

You will enjoy this course and have a good laugh at the Bible together with Sir Martin, if you an atheist or such.


What a stage for an ignorant!!!...assumptions of minds influenced by media (media = junk)


The lecturer focuses on the details of the new testament to debunk Christianity as a whole, failing to see the big picture of the new testament which fits into the first century.

Just another liberal professor making flimsy argument against the Bible in a covert way but failing miserably...
