The New Testament began as letters and other documents written by people such as the Apostles. Those documents would circulate to the many churches scattered around the Roman Empire. In fact, in the earliest days of the Christian church, most people experienced the Word by listening to scripture rather than reading it themselves.

Learning from the Bible with others as it is read out loud remains important for those interested in connecting with God and each other. In this short but essential course, Prof. N.T. Wright explains why experiencing the Bible read aloud is a formative activity everyone should experience.
