THE NEW TESTAMENT – Rel A 212 Winter 2011 [email protected] Stan Johnson (801) 422-7689 Office: 303 F JSB Office Hours: T/Th 1:00-1:50 pm, F 10:00-10:50 am Text: The LDS Bible (KJV) Course Objectives: In a talk given in the October 2008 General Conference, President Thomas S. Monson said, “Who is this man of sorrows, acquainted with grief? Who is the King of glory, this Lord of hosts? He is our Master. He is our Savior. He is the Son of God. He is the Author of our Salvation. He beckons, “Follow me.” He instructs, “Go, and do thou likewise.” He pleads, “Keep my commandments.” (President Thomas S. Monson, Ensign , November 2008, p. 88). Therefore, this course is designed to help us learn and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ as presented through His Apostles. The Course will emphasize the following objectives: 1. To show that the New Testament is another witness that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Eternal Father. 2. To understand the basic history and doctrine taught in the New Testament that will help us to “Come unto Christ.” 3. To better understand the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and our need to exercise faith in Him. 4. To see how the revelations of the restoration have restored many “plain and precious parts” taken from the Bible. 5. To identify and strive to understand the main characters in the New Testament that followed or opposed our Redeemer and His Chosen Apostles. 6. To increase one’s testimony and knowledge of the Son of God, an emphasis will be given to applying His example in daily life. Evaluation: Students’ grades will be determined by a point system. Points may be earned or lost during the semester in four different areas: Proportion of Grade 1. 4 Quizzes (drop lowest score) 30% 2. Midterm Exam 30% 3. Final Exam 30% 4. Reading 10% 5. Attendance 1% deduction for every absence over 3

Exams: There will be two examinations: a midterm and a final. Both will be closed book. The midterm will cover material of Acts 1-28, I and II Thessalonians and I Corinthians, and corresponding material and the final will cover Acts-Revelation and corresponding material covered in class. Students should plan to answer test questions based on the information given in class or from the reading assigned—not what they remember from other places. No previous acquaintance with the material is assumed. Students who are recent converts or non-members should be at no disadvantage if they read the assigned material and attend class lectures. Students who assume they already know the material and can pass the test based on previously learned material will be at a disadvantage since tests and quizzes will be based on what is given in class and the assigned reading. Answers which might be defensible in other circumstances will not be correct unless they reflect the specific information given in class. A general breakdown of 100-93 = A, etc. will be assigned.
