Biblical Studies

"I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount."
  -Martin Luther, German monk, theologian, and Church reformer (1483-1546)

The Biblical Studies minor at Colorado Christian University equips you for a lifetime of growth in Bible study by giving you the tools and knowledge needed to do accurate exposition of biblical texts. The Biblical Studies minor is also effective preparation for further study in graduate school or seminary and assists in developing essential skills for studying ancient and religious texts. 

Biblical Studies In the Christian University

Studying the Bible is relevant no matter what career you pursue. That's why all Colorado Christian University students are required to build a biblical foundation by completing 12 credits of Bible and theology courses from the Biblical Studies program professors. Bible courses at CCU challenge you to go deeper – to keep asking tough questions until you discover the answers, to keep seeking until your faith becomes your own.

Matt Jones

Assistant Professor of New Testament Studies
School of Theology

As a follower of Christ, a student of theology and faculty member, my responsibility to glorify God rests upon helping students love God, love others, and make disciples through an intimate knowledge of the Triune God. Through the work and power of the Holy Spirit, I hope to encourage students to think critically, responsibly, and faithfully about the character and work of the Trinity and be an active participant in the Triune God’s redemptive plan for humankind.
