This is how most Christians read the New Testament, either in private devotion or as part of a believing community. In an academic setting, we approach the New Testament in such a way that both Christians and interested non-Christians can participate. We seek to understand the New Testament without necessarily ascribing normative status to it.

The student may want to have a description of these religions without necessarily adopting them.
