Name: TD Khang RELI 104: New Testament Literature Fall 2012 Final Exam My expectations will be high because this is an open book exam. I expect your answers to be filled with details, concrete examples, NT references, etc. Claims lacking specific evidence will not receive full credit. This is your chance to show me how well you understand the material— not to contemplate its truth. If you feel the need to say anything that is based on faith, frame it objectively (Many Christians today believe…). Better yet, tell me what particular early Christian communities understood or what a particular gospel writer seemed to believe. You are not to discuss the exam questions or answers with your fellow classmates. When you consult your textbook, PowerPoints, lecture notes or other sources, please cite them and include page numbers (when applicable). For the purposes of this exam, including citations is less a scholarly exercise than a courtesy acknowledging the contributions of others. And if you write something that I can’t make heads or tails of, I might be able to figure it out by consulting your source (this always happens a couple times a year). For your own sake, don’t go searching for random information on the internet—it is more likely to lead you astray than improve your grade. These questions do not require research, just a thoughtful analysis of what we’ve already covered. PLEASE proofread your answers carefully after you complete the exam. Use complete sentences, correct grammar, etc. If there are an excessive number of errors, you will lose points. I’m not looking for any certain length for either section, but the more information you can fit in the least amount of space the better. Don’t feel you need to dedicate entire days to completing this exam; just answer the questions thoroughly. Please type your responses in this file and send it back (be sure to save it under your name). Good luck! Email me your completed final by 6pm on Friday, December 16 th . Part I: Short Answer Questions: Please answer ten of the following questions as fully yet concisely as possible—always provide at least one specific example. Answers should be about a paragraph long. (In other words, you probably need to give an answer a bit more time if you only have two or three sentences.) (10 points each) 1. How does the occasional nature of Paul’s letters affect how we understand his beliefs? The tone and style of Paul’s letter, Romans, show that he himself wrote them to gain support and financial aid for his missions (Erhman 357). Paul needed support for his missions and a location for his base of operation so he wrote multiple letters to various cities explaining his purpose and beliefs. Paul had special interest in Rome according Romans 1:10-15. Paul believed the end was near so he spent a lot of his time converting people.

2. Describe the differences and similarities between Paul’s forensic and participationist models of salvation and give a few examples of where he uses each. According to Box 22.4 on page 365, Paul’s forensic or judicial and participationist
