New Testament scholarship attempts rational, sensible understanding of the early Christian literature and its world. It engages in a conversation with the past in order to discover, learn about, and criticise ways of being human. Such understanding implies an extensive knowledge of the many parts of our complex social context and conceptual heritage and then integrates these into the enquiring and religious discourses of today. It has the potential to make a useful contribution to the educational process by creating a historical consciousness, by installing a respect for the 'other' through cross-cultural communication and exposure to a multi-cultural experience and by inculcating a critical attitude towards the social institutions of our day.
