Great Figures of the New Testament (The Great Courses - Book + 4 DVDs) / Professor Amy-Jill Levine

£19.99

Product description

This set of a paperback book and 4 DVDs are in excellent condition. The 155-page book is in excellent condition inside and out, apart from slight corner wear. The 4 DVDs (which have been tested to play without problems) are in excellent condition with no marking, and are housed in a DVD case which is in very good condition, with minimal wear.

Improve your biblical literacy with these 24 insightful lectures about the cast of vivid characters in the New Testament. From the well-known figures of Jesus, John the Baptist, and the disciples to important but lesser known figures, such as the Syro-Phoenician woman who must turn Jesus's own words back on him to gain the healing of her daughter, Professor Levine paints vivid portraits of Christianity's founding generation. You'll learn about such figures as:The elderly couple Elizabeth and Zechariah and their son, John the Baptist; Jesus's friends, the contemplative Mary and the vocal Martha, as well as their brother, Lazarus; The apostles Peter and Thomas, James and John, and Judas Iscariot; Mary Magdalene, who becomes known as the apostle to the apostles; Paul the apostle, as presented in Acts of the Apostles and what can be determined about him from his letters; A number of strong and interesting women, including the unnamed Samaritan and a repentant sinner who anoints Jesus; Jesus's interlocutors, including the centurion with a paralyzed son and the desperate Canaanite mother with a demon-possessed daughter. Rather than promoting any particular religious worldview, this course seeks to read the ancient texts anew to discover what they really say and how they were interpreted by both the secular culture and the faithful church.
