Overview

 

Robert Gundry's now classic survey of the New Testament has been a mainstay for college and graduate courses around the world, having been used by thousands of professors and students. This fifth edition includes updates and revisions throughout and a fresh, full-color design.

One thing about A Survey of the New Testament that has not changed: its premise. Unlike most New Testament surveys, this book leads students to actually read the Bible. Topics and issues discussed in the text are linked whenever possible with assigned readings that expose the reader to the entire New Testament. Comments on the readings provide additional help.

A Survey of the New Testament, 5th Edition, includes these features:
- New design in full-color with more photos and improved maps
- Links to relevant websites
- Outlines, study goals, summaries, and review questions for each chapter
- Phonetic pronunciations for unfamiliar names and terms
- Breakouts with illustrative quotes from ancient, nonbiblical literature
- Updated bibliographies
- Available as both ebook and enhanced ebook with video introductions, animated maps and illustrations, chapter flashcards, and more

    III. CULTURAL BACKGROUND OTHER THAN RELIGIOUS

    * Many Jews lived outside as well as inside Israel.

    * Roman roads facilitated travel over land; commercial transport went mainly by water.

    * Cities had public baths & toilets, sewage systems, pavements, schools, etc.

    * Private homes ranged from villas to apartment buildings & huts.

    * Most people had skimpy, largely meatless diets.

    * People wore a short robe (tunic) next to the skin, plus a long outer robe & cloth belt.

    * There was no large middle class, but many slaves.

    * Social mores included male dominance, importance of honor & shame, sexual immorality (even as part of pagan religions), much divorce, exposure of unwanted infants.

    * Entertainment included drama, athletic competition, chariot races, gladiatorial shows.

    * Instead of big industry, there were small businesses with trade guilds, other voluntary associations, & banking.

    * Medical practice included surgery & dentistry.

     

    III. RELIGIOUS BACKGROUND

    * Paganism featured mythology regarding a pantheon of gods & goddesses, emperor worship, mystery religions, superstitious practices, syncretism with outgrowths of Gnosticism & the influence of philosophies (esp. Stoicism).

    * Judaism featured

    Synagogues, the second temple (beautified by Herod the Great)

    OT in original Hebrew, Greek translation (LXX), & Aramaic paraphrases (targums)

    Apocryphal books, pseudepigraphal/apocalyptic books, Dead Sea Scrolls, Talmud

    Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes; Herodians & Zealots; scribes & disciples; Sanhedrin

    People of the land; Diaspora Jews as Hebraists & Hellenists; Gentile proselytes & God-fearers

    Narrow religious education of Jews in contrast with liberal education among Gentiles

    Messianic hope

     

    IV. CANON AND TEXT OF THE NT

    * "Canon" refers to books accepted as standard for belief & conduct.

    * In the precanonical period, Christians depended on the OT, oral tradition regarding Jesus, & pronouncements of Christian prophets.

    * The homolegoumena were books quickly canonized, antilegomena books eventually canonized.

    * Marcion's short canon prompted orthodox formalizing of the present NT canon.
