Interpreting the New Testament: Study an Intensive Unit at Trinity

April 24, 2017

How would you like to grow your skills for reading the Bible somewhere close to the level of skills you use at work? Our five day intensive called Interpreting the New Testament provides an opportunity to develop core skills for reading this part of the Bible.

The intensive will attend to a number of different types of literature within the New Testament and ask how these should be read within their original contexts. The lectures will expose students to a number of different methods for reading the Bible and drawing out its relevance for living in the modern world.

Our guest lecturer for this intensive is Dr John Frederick. John has a PhD in New Testament studies from the University of St Andrews (Aberdeen, Scotland) that focused on the book of Colossians. His most recent book is Worship in the Way of the Cross: Leading Worship for the Sake of Others (Downers Grove: InterVarsity; forthcoming 2017). Before working in ministry, John was a full-time musician, touring, teaching and writing original music, and leading worship at churches.

Students may take Interpreting the New Testament for credit toward a Diploma of Ministry, Bachelor of Ministry, or a Master of Ministry. For more information please contact us at

Interpreting the New Testament intensive will be held on the 5th to 9th June from 9:00am to 4.30pm at Trinity College Queensland, Auchenflower.
