Bible Core Course ( CHR 211 )

Through this course, the students get a thorough understanding of the inductive approach to Bible study by learning how to employ many creative and diverse methods for reading, interpreting and applying the Scriptures. Students also have opportunities to be involved in topical seminars, dramatic re-creations, and various forms of literary research. During the course students read through the whole Bible and study in depth many individual books from both the Old and the New Testaments. This investigative approach gives the students a clear understanding of the culture and history of the Bible, thereby providing them with deeper grasp of God’s word. Note: though the Bible Core Course is a stand-alone course, it is designed to be compatible with the longer 9-month SBS (CHR 213, 315 and 316).
