Description

Before coming to grips with an individual verse or passage in the New Testament, Bible students and expositors must understand how it relates to the theme of the book. This nontechnical survey offers readers a working understanding of the New Testament by providing the theological tools necessary to synthesize biblical passages into themes. It incorporates historical and cultural backgrounds without becoming a book on manners and customs and deals with the actual text of Scripture without becoming a verse-by-verse commentary. Pictures, charts, and outlines aid comprehension. This classic text, which has served students well for many years, is now available in paperback.

Preface
The purpose of a survey is to give a Christian a working understanding of the message of the New Testament books. For that reason, it must include the results of New Testament Introduction without getting involved in the technical discussions. It must incorporate historical and cultural background, gleaned from Bible dictionaries and encyclopedias, without becoming a book of manners and customs. It must come to grips with the actual text of Scripture without becoming a verse by verse commentary. As an introductory discipline, it seeks to lay an adequate foundation for detailed book studies and passage exegesis later on in the experience of the students. This, then, becomes the challenge of both the teacher and the student. The latter should be aware of the goals and extent of this study and the former should neither skim the surface nor get bogged down in insignificant details.
As a survey teacher of college freshmen for over thirteen years, the author has observed that many graduates of the Sunday school know what happened in the New Testament era, but not why those things occurred. Interpretative significance must always be attached to historical fact. Some students may know the meaning of an individual verse or passage, but they are unable to relate it to the theme of the book. Synthesis must precede analysis.
In this text the author has attempted to present a readable, understandable survey. His goal has been to make the complex simple and to say much in few words. It has been designed to meet the needs of survey students at the freshman and sophomore levels of Christian liberal arts colleges, Bible colleges, and Bible institutes. In addition, it could serve as an adequate text and study guide for adult Sunday school and Training Union classes, local church evening Bible institutes, and home Bible classes.
The text has been written from a firm evangelical persuasion that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God, the basis of the faith and practice of each believer. The hermeneutic approach is that of moderate dispensationalism.
The first chapter provides necessary background data: both intertestamental and first-century history, social and economic conditions, Gentile religions and philosophies, and Judaistic practices. The next two chapters view the entire New Testament at a glance and the Gospels in particular.
