Studies in Old Testament and New Testament and Biblical Studies Minor

Old Testament and New Testament Studies

Do you love the Word of God? Do you desire to study the Bible in-depth with the proper tools and an understanding of background issues? Then our Old Testament and New Testament studies are for you.

The BA in Christian Studies allows you flexibility in course selections. Courses in Biblical Studies will prepare you best for a future of sharing the Bible.  We offer a variety of Old and New Testament courses, a hermeneutics course, a biblical backgrounds course, and special topic courses such as Parables of Jesus and The Book of Revelation. Students who have a special interest in serious study of the Bible are encouraged to take a biblical language (Hebrew or Greek) to fulfill their foreign language requirement so as to maximize their ability to study the Word of God. 

The overall Christian Studies curriculum provides courses that will ground you in areas that form and support you in your pursuit of Biblical Studies. Additional course electives in the areas of Christian Ministry, Theology, Philosophy, Church History, and Biblical Archaeology enable further exploration of your interests and preparation for your vocation.
