The population of the whole world is over 7 billion today; more than half are Christians and Muslims, one-third of this number are Christians and one-fifth are Muslims. Both Christianity and Islam came out of Ancient Judaism, the religion of the Old Testament. Studying the Old Testament is essential to understanding the world religions, particularly the fundamental elements of the Bible, and in order to grasp the foundations and history of the modern world.
The New Testament is the foundational document on which varieties of Christianity over 2000 years, in east and west, in old and new versions, have been based. In ‘New Testament Studies’ researchers investigate when and where each document was written, to whom, for what purpose and how it was composed in its historical, social and literary environment. In this way, the meanings of each text and its theological implications are explored.
