The New Testament in Words and Images

Pontifex University

Rev. Sebastian A. Carnazzo, PhD



A survey of the books of the New Testament through the lens of the Old Testament with an emphasis in traditional Biblical Typology.

Throughout the course, students are directed to the traditional iconographic representation of significant events of the New Covenant and, thereby, acquire a unique understanding of the both the truths being considered and the importance of visual imagery in the proclamation of the Faith and ongoing catechesis. Is recommended that students take first the Old Testament survey titled The Old Testament in Words and Images.



By the end of this course the students will be able to discuss the Biblical typology present in the New Testament as it relates to Salvation History.
