Synopsis:

The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background.

In CliffsNotes on The New Testament, you follow along what's often called "The Greatest Story Ever Told" as it recounts the teachings of the prophet Jesus of Nazareth, who lived 2,000 years ago. It is a rich source of poetry and knowledge and is the rock upon which Christianity stands.

This study guide carries you along on Jesus' incredible journey by providing summaries and commentaries on The New Testament of the Bible. Other features that help you study include

  • An introduction to the New Testament
  • The historical background of Christianity
  • An outline of the life of Jesus
  • A selected bibliography that leads you to more great resources

Classic literature or modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.

Synopsis:

The importance of The Holy Bible, whether as a master work of literature or religious canon, can hardly be overestimated. This comprehensive study guide provides a unique approach to reading The Holy Bible and helps readers dive deep into the New Testament to analyze the teachings of Jesus through poetry and parable. The guide also leads readers through the Old Testament, the foundation for both Judaism and Christianity and the moral and political beacon for many nations of the Western world.
