Engaging Gospel Doctrine





In this introductory podcast preparatory to teach the New Testament in Sunday School, I:

  • Provide recommendations for devotional New Testament reading
  • Provide recommended resources (also linked below)
  • Explain what you can do as listeners to help the podcast
  • Provide a long but hopefully entertaining explanation of how we got the New Testament
