The story of Jesus is the starting point for understanding the church's identity and mission. This study weaves a dialog between that story, as told by Matthew, and the other New Testament writings. Participants learn how the New Testament writers wrestled with the issues and implications of the story of Jesus for the formation of communities of faith.

Invitation To The New Testament
8 sessions, 60-90 minutes
Experience required: In Depth

Explore the writings of the New Testament using the story of Jesus as the starting point. This survey of the testament looks at how the early church took ownership of and was shaped by the story of Jesus and how the church learned how to develop as disciples and create communities of faith.

Participants find a deeper conversation with the writers of the NT and a renewal of our commitment to be shaped---personally and communally---by the story of Jesus.

In the weekly video segments, listen as scholars fascinate you with facts and information that opens new understanding and enlightenment for your group. In the second video, sit in on a table conversation between guest scholars and debate key issues in the text.Sessions:
1. Jesus Calls Us Into God's Redemption Story
2. Jesus Calls Us to a Transformed Life
3. Jesus Calls Us to Minister to a Hostile World
4. Jesus Calls Us to Complex Communities of Faith
5. Jesus Calls Us to Serve One Another
6. Jesus Calls Us to a New Relationship With Tradition
7. Jesus Calls Us to Live in Light of His Coming Again
8. Jesus Calls Us to Experience the Gifts of His Dying and Rising

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Invitation to the New Testament  Feb 2, 2006
I liked "Invitation to the Old Testament." I was disappointed that "Invitation to the New Testament" and the accompanying video were not of the same caliber.

The producers of the video may have been trying to emulate the roundtable discussions featured on "Washington Week in review." Unfortunately, they were not successful. I noticed dizzying camera movements and not much content.

The participant book uses phrases like, "paradigmatic" and "overstepping deeply entrenched boundaries between people, persevering in the face of hostility, or embodying a new set of values that elevates servanthood above self promotion." What is this supposed to mean? The book is designed as a Bible study. It is not a theology or seminary text. Why use such big words as "paradigmatic"?

While the conflicts in the book of Galatians are discussed at length, we are never encouraged to read some of the most famous chapters in the Bible such as First Corinthians 12, 13, and 14. First Corinthians 5 is assigned twice. Why?

There is some great material in the New Testament. It is a pity to make the material sound trivial or boring.
