After a short discussion of the canonical shape of the New Testament—the “table of contents”—I move directly to the writings themselves in roughly canonical order: the Gospels, Acts, the Pauline letters, Hebrews, the Catholic Letters, and finally Revelation. When I teach this course at my seminary, I move to the actual reading of the New Testament itself as quickly as possible—usually after two or three class sessions. I have found it valuable pedagogically for students to read the four Gospels in close succession and then discuss the various strategies that have been developed for relating the Gospels to each other.
