  • Your range of study will span the history of Israel in its ancient near Eastern context, the poetry and wisdom literature of the Jewish bible, and a survey of the major and minor prophets of the Old Testament. You’ll investigate the life and teachings of Jesus Christ as revealed in the gospel accounts.

    You’ll explore the development of the early Church and its theology, including the epistles of Paul and the other New Testament writers, while considering how interpreters address problem passages. You’ll learn apologetics – giving a rational defense of the Christian faith – from historical and philosophical perspectives as well as from textual examination to discover the reasons for why you believe what you believe. Your bible study and teaching skills will grow as a result of courses that will introduce you to effective tools and methods.

    The Spiritual Foundations of Leadership course will expand your personal leadership qualities, enabling you to put theory into practice through mentoring, discipling, and apprenticeship relationships. And a final capstone project will give you an opportunity to synthesize the many aspects of your biblical studies experience into a solid and meaningful framework.
