New Testament Summary
I need to write a summary of the New Testament for my Religion Studies class.
Can someone please help?
The New Testament is very long and in some places pretty boring.
Just try to pick the main parts like the birth of Jesus, his resurrection and finish with some parts from the Book of Revelation.
The task is complicated, as the New Testament covers a big period of time, set in different parts of Roman Empire and is written in different genres.
I suggest you to search for some short but most important excerpts and write their summary, don’t even bother with fitting everything in.
I suggest you reading it by yourself and making your own assumptions and conclusions.
Religious literature is not the one to mess with.
Go to the library and find a book written by a real scholar who is not pro or against Christianity.
His critical work would be the most helpful.
I think that this task is bonkers. Studying something you can’t really comprehend is very hard.
I suggest you to look for some critical works and summarize them.
Mary gave birth to the Son of God, the king was afraid that the child would take his kingdom, when growing up, Jesus began to show some magic powers and so on.
The usual stories from the New Testament.
It’s not even a book but a collection of books scattered all over the place. I have no idea how to summarize everything into one.
Don’t cheat and read it yourself. In some parts it’s boring, in others you can learn something.
