Ben Brown’s Adult Sunday School, October 11 & 25, November 8, 15 & 22: Creating and Translating the New Testament, a five-week class exploring the relationship between the theology of the New Testament and the politics of the Roman Empire in the fourth century and the politics of Reformation Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries
The early Christian church created the New Testament shortly after the Roman Emperor adopted Christianity as the state religion of Rome. The early Christian fathers had to choose from a wide variety of books that chronicled the life of Jesus and the early Christians. They chose to include books in the canon that supported a specific theological vision of Jesus’s life and death. I will then discuss how the Protestant reformers wrested the New Testament from the control of the Roman Catholic Church and translated into German and English in the 16th century.
