Biblical Studies

Overview

The Biblical Studies emphasis is designed to give the student a solid foundation in the content of the Bible, with particular emphasis on analyzing individual biblical books and understanding the progressive unfolding of revelation across the Old and New Testaments. Students also receive grounding in the biblical languages and the historical context of the biblical world, and many take advantage of the opportunity to spend a semester studying the Bible in Israel through our IBEX program.

Whether a student is interested in graduate studies in the Bible or a future in professional ministry, or whether they wish to handle the Bible accurately in their homes and churches in a lay capacity, our Biblical Studies emphasis provides them with ideal preparation. Our faculty’s deep concern for proper hermeneutics means that our students graduate not only knowing what the Bible says, but also knowing how to study it independently and explain it faithfully to others.
