I would have preferred more detail about the Gospels as described than an analysis of how each is studied.Joyce
The most difficult course that I have taken so farPhilip
While some of the material was difficult to grasp, retaking the lectures gave me a firmer understanding and a desire to dig deeper into the subject.Edward
An excellent course!Russell
The content was very good, although only the second lecture was specifically about Matthew and Mark. I enjoyed learning the background information about the New Testament canon and the theory of Hermeneutics and Exegesis though. The lecture was delivered at quite a fast speed with no natural breaks, so I found it difficult to take in the information, but using the transcript with the questions helped with this. Thank you, I feel I have learned new things through this course.Kathryn
