New Testament theology is a vast subject. It can be daunting to even know where to begin. The New Testament includes writings in several different genres by several different authors. Each book was written for a specific situation and has its own unique emphases and even vocabulary. How do you begin to organize these different writings into an overarching structure for doing New Testament theology?
New Testament expert, professor, and author Douglas Moo deals with this dilemma in his Mobile Ed course NT305 New Testament Theology. In this sample clip, Dr. Moo talks about what he uses as a basic organizing principle for doing New Testament theology:
Dr. Moo goes on to show how this contrast between two realms shows up in the teachings of Jesus, Paul, and John. He looks first at the old realm, surveying the effects of sin, the nature of humanity, and the purpose of the Old Testament law. He then shows how the person of Jesus Christ is the center of the new realm, how his work ushered it in, and how God’s grace enables us to enter it. Dr. Moo then examines what the New Testament has to say about how we are to live as people in the new realm.
