BACHELOR OF ARTS IN RELIGION | MAJOR IN biblical theology
This program is designed to give students a well-rounded college education with sound preparation in Bible & Theology (51 credits), Biblical language emphasis, as well as a foundation in Practics (36 credits) and General Studies (36 credits).
An aptitude for the study of Biblical Hebrew and/or Greek is a pre-requisite for enrolment in this program. Students who desire to continue their education at the graduate level will find this major attractive.
More than ever before, the world needs to hear a clear presentation of Biblical truth! The Biblical Theology program seeks to equip students with a sound foundation in Scripture that addresses contemporary issues in a relevant way. The program's focus on Biblical exposition will prepare the studious person for a teaching and preaching ministry. Jesus said, "Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old." We need this kind of leader today-leaders who understand how to mine the Scriptures in order to make fresh application of truth in today's contexts
