I was really surprised to find out how much I didn’t know about the New Testament. In all the years of my salvation, I never considered or investigated the Historical background of the New Testament.

The course is presented in a systematic way which provide me the insights on the historical background of the old and new testament. The historical background of the different sects and religions available that time are fascinating. They provide a clearer picture has in how challenging it would be to spread the Gospels to the rest of the world. Would definitely introduce this course to those who would like to draw closer to God to appreciate the Word of God.
