BIB 5313 Early Christianity and the Gentile Mission

Early Christianity was a diverse phenomenon, a product of varied religious, social, and cultural contexts. This course explores the theological and cultural issues involved in Christianity’s engagement with the larger world. We will examine the historical and theological background for the church’s gentile mission, selected New Testament texts that engage these issues, and draw implications for American Christianity’s interaction with the larger culture(s) around it.
