“How to Get Out of the World Alive” might be a better title for the New Testament. The main theme of the New Testament is that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners and to give you a quality of life that would be absolutely impossible if He hadn’t come. How does this good news affect you? What will you do with this amazing gift that God offers you through Jesus Christ? The New Testament Basics course will show you the importance of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and how to get out of this world alive.

I loved it, very helpful and easily understood.Mark
I am enjoying the course, very glad to be able to learn more.Patricia
This course has given me a lot of understanding into what was behind each of the NT books and helped to clarify for me why some of the things were written and how better to apply them.Roger
This course has been a great help to me, it opened up the scriptures and enlighten me to study more. It is a blessing.Carolyn
An excellent course!Russell
Very easy to read and understandStephanie
Challenging, but good.Cheryl
It would be nice if the quiz questions were more scripturally bases and fewer based on Dr. Buzzell’s opinionGary
I like the comprehensive overview of the course. It gives me an 50,000 foot look at the NT. I do wish the questions to each epistle can be a bit more specific to each book instead of the standard ten questions. A brief conclusion of the end will be helpful to review what we have learned from a high level.Doug
Dr. Buzzell did an excellent job with this course, so much so that I will use what I have learned to apply to teaching the Word and living it out, and incorporating it into active Christian counseling ministry.Andre
Some of the quiz questions feel more like “nit picky” questions instead of assessing true depth of biblical content .Autumn
Would have like to know the right answers to the questions that I missed.Terry

I enjoyed the reading material and lectures. I would highly recommend this course to others.Allison
This course was so enjoyable and gave a very good guideline on why the New Testament is constructed the way it is, who the writers were, and who they were addressing. Thank you.Amanda
At the beginning of this course I thought I was already knowledgeable about everything that it would be teaching but I found that that was not the case at all, and I learned quite a bit from this course. I probably benefited the most by understanding who the author of each of the epistles were, the audience they were addressing and the basic theme for each of the epistles. In fact, in my own Bible reading I have been reading through Acts and I am just finishing Romans, and I am already getting more out of my personal Bible reading time having taken this course. This course was very well organized.Kathleen
I have been studying the Bible for years, but I was pleased that I was able to learn so much from a basic course.Robert
This course was presented in a way that was relevant, easy to understand and kept me interested in going further with other courses in this series of the New Testament.Charles
