Master of Arts in Biblical Studies

The goal of the teacher is to reveal Jesus in his fullness to the Church, the way to God, the truth to believe and know, the source of life now and for eternity.

The Master of Arts (Biblical Studies) is designed primarily for those who anticipate a teaching ministry in the Bible but are not led toward ordination or the pastorate. It is a two-year, full-time, fully onsite programme for degree holders which can serve as a stepping stone toward the PhD at many institutions. Rigorous preparation in biblical languages, extensive training in exegesis, and understanding the essential doctrines of the church prepare the student to succeed in the calling to teach and to serve the church through research in biblical studies. Preparation in a worshipful and caring community ensures a holistic approach to learning.

Students enrolled in this programme can choose to focus on either the Greek or Hebrew language in their exegesis courses.
