New Testament Theology: Texts in English

Level 6

Available from: 2020-21

This module builds on the Level 4 module Reading the New Testament to focus on New Testament theology.

The module enables you to explore three key areas of New Testament theological thought: Christology, soteriology, and eschatology.

As you engage with the Gospels, the Pauline writings, the letter to the Hebrews and the Book of Revelation, you will gain an appreciation of the university and diversity that characterises New Testament theology.

You will develop skills in interpreting New Testament texts in terms of their theological content, while remaining sensitive to the historical, social and cultural context of the texts.


A two thousand word essay (40%) and a 1.5-hour unseen written examination (60%).
