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. Throughout the course, scripture should be cited according to APA (The Holy Bible, Version, Year, Reference). Here is an example; (The Holy Bible, NIV, 1973/2011, Mark 1:1)
