Discussion Prompt: Background Study
After reading the required chapters this week in Gundry (2012), address the following:
Discuss how and if your understanding of the background of the Scriptures, especially the New Testament, affects the way that you study, interpret and apply biblical teachings. Particularly focus on the canon, text, and translations and the importance of each of these to your views of the New Testament.
Describe any particular resource, experience, or historical event that may have played a part in your view of the New Testament.
Please cite any resource that you use in your entry. Scripture should be cited like this: (Mark 1:1, version you are using).
Respond to at least two other classmates postings with how you relate to their answers. As classmates or your instructor reply to your initial post you should interact with them as well.
