We are asked, “How then should we live in Jesus Christ?”. That is the most important answer and I believe that everything that we need to know is in the New Testament. You also benefit from reading the Old Testament at the same time and comparing what the two say.
The true focus of the books remains Jesus Christ throughout the New Testament. The high level flow is Christ from God’s long term intention to provide a savior and redeemer to reestablish our broken relationship with Him The gospels flow to Christ birth, sinless live, death, resurrection, ascension and prophetic return. Act move to early days of the Church and the epistles show us how to live by faith and maintain a vital relationship with God through the Holy Spirit and how the Church functions as the body of Christ. Revelation reveals Christ return as our king and judge and it reveals the glories of eternal life in heaven. If we do not understand this flow and study the books of the New Testament independently we will miss “God’s Big Picture”, miss the true joy of God’s word and develop flawed theology.
For me the most significant insight from the lesson is the focus on “ how then should I live?” in light of the good news and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We would develop an understanding of God’s plan for our lives and we would learn how to live in a way that reflects Jesus. We would also come to understand the importance of the old testament and how it is connected to the new.

I could say that at the end of this course I will able to have deeper understanding with the New Testament.
The best benefit would b e to know that Jesus Christ came here to earth to forgive us our sins and offer a us a new life./
This basic New Testament course has enabled me understand the message God wanted to give us in knowing that after the terrible ways of humans in the old testament he has now come to earth as human so that we can identify better with God rather than imaginary. If one understands that concept accepting Jesus as our savior makes more sense since he is really GOD indeed.
A benefit from learning how the “New testament fits together” would be that then one can see how the entire Bible fits together. The Bible is dense and full of very important information. The more that we understand each component of the Bible, the more understand the book as a whole. Ultimately, the more we understand the Bible, the more we Understand God and more willing we will be to let Him work in our lives.

The benefit would be to get a clearer understanding of the New Testament. It would help us see and be part of Jesus’ journey on earth. For those of us who are saved we can apply Jesus’ teachings to our lives. It can also bring us closer to Him
The biggest benefit is to realize that God gave his only begotten son that who whatsoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. It is also essential to read and understand the gospels and epistles written to understand the historical and spiritual context under which they were written. This will give the believer a deeper understanding into the 27 books of the New Testament and help in emboldening their faith and undersatnding of the will of God.
This course gives us a flow of how the New Testament fits together. A benefit that would result from learning that the New Testament fits together would be an appreciation of the scriptures that teach us how to love God and people.
God wants us to spread the good news to others. The good news is the gospel. In order for us to spread the good news, it has to be done in love. The scripture says in Galatians 5:14, For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. The scripture also says in John 13:35 that by this all men will know that we are his disciples, if we have love one to another.
The New Testament shares the love of Christ in the gospel of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. It fits together with the message of loving others as Christ has loved us and gave Himself for us. It also fits together the story of Jesus’ great love for us as he died on the cross for our sins. There we have the benefits of knowing and loving Christ for dying on the cross.
I plan on using the knowledge of how to incorporate and add these teachings into my tutelage to my students.
Everything in my life would benefit from knowing how the New testament fists together. I love Jesus and I take my faith in him seriously but being able to articulate why and how the NT and the OT relate to my relationship and why its important has always been a struggle. Because I myself didn’t understand the grand scheme of it. I understood the Jesus loved me and that he died for my sins because I am a sinner. But diving deep and learning the theology of the bible is amazing and how it is all woven together gives me confidence to talk about it in ways I have never been able to before.
After reading the portion of Stedman’s book I realized there were so many connections and symbols in the Gospels that I missed when reading the Bible and attending church. I think a benefit of learning the history and flow helps us better understand our faith, learn how to share our faith, and make connections in the past, present and future.
I plan on using the simplicity of this first lesson to keep me on track as I read and study. If I find myself confused or lost I can go back to the central message of “God sent his son into the world to save sinners.”
Having an overview gives one an opportunity to see how all the books fit together. I think you can a deeper understanding of the Bible when you see how everything works together.
Learning how the whole new Testament fits together helps us to see the big picture of Christianity.
It is a necessity to understand the way the New Testament fits together, whether in a group or individual study. For an example, understanding the way the Old and New Testament work together to tell a complete story is vital. Otherwise, we are studying an incomplete story.
By understanding how the New Testament is written, we are able to use the Bible in all aspects of our life and what our needs are at any particular time.
I am hoping I will have a more general understanding of the theology of the NT…not just individual events/teachings.
This way you get an overview of the whole New Testament. When you take the advanced classes you will have a general knowledge or an outline of each book so that you can dig in deeper to the chapers and verses to better understand the meaning of what God is saying.
