This module examines the developing theology of the New Testament, paying particular attention to the issue of unity and diversity, and to the themes of Christology and soteriology. Given the importance of Paul to the development of early Christianity, a significant proportion of the module is devoted to studying his writings and those traditionally understood to be Pauline. The distinctive contributions of other New Testament writings will then be examined, as the coherence of early Christian theology is considered.
