Old Testament Survey

This course provides a brief overview of the Hebrew Scriptures (in English) following the three-section division of the Hebrew Bible – the Law (Torah), the Prophets, and the Writings. Emphasis will be placed on each book’s origin and setting, content and form, and overarching themes in relation to contemporary life and mission. Occasional attention will be given to interpretive issues and theological concerns.

New Testament Survey

The NT Survey course provides a general introduction to the New Testament writings, from the Gospels, Acts, the Epistles, and Revelation. Theological and missional contributions, distinctives, and interrelationships will be considered, as well as the authorship, date, historical context, occasion, structure, and purpose of each writing. Special attention will be given to methods of interpretation and relevance for contemporary ministry situations.

Systematic Theology

Explore Scripture from a different point of view by deepening your understanding of the grand themes of our Christian faith. This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of systematic theology and of Christian beliefs. It will help you understand why you believe what you believe, and the historical background of foundational Christian doctrines. Our study will be built around The Navigators’ Statement of Faith, which includes statements related to Bibliology, Trinitarian Theology, Christology, Anthropology, Hamartiology, Soteriology, Eschatology, and Pneumatology.

Hermeneutics

Biblical Hermeneutics is the study of the principles of interpretation applied to Scripture passages in light of their special nature. The field of hermeneutics is concerned with how we derive and assign meaning to communication. Biblical Hermeneutics investigates not only general principles and models of interpreting meaning, but also the special nature of the written Word as God-inspired communication, the history of how God’s people have interpreted Scripture, the impact of biblical literary genre on interpreting meaning, and the present significance of its meaning to Christian individual, corporate, and societal life, and to the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom to the nations.

Church History

This course provides a basic overview of the history of Christianity and historical theology from the post-apostolic period into the twentieth century. Attention will be given to the origins and developments of various expressions of the doctrines and practices of the historical church. Focus will be limited to the development of “Western” Christianity.

Exegetical Methods

Sharpen your biblical interpretation and study skills and become more confident in your ability to rightly divide the Word of Truth through this course. Exegetical Methods provides a basic overview of the principles and practices of biblical exegesis with special attention to the use of exegetical aids, such as dictionaries, lexicons, concordances, and critical commentaries. Assignments will focus on how exegetical decisions are made, and how we move from the exegesis of the text to our appropriation of it in life and ministry.

The Canon and the Reliability of Scripture

 As we look at the whole of scripture, it is a faith not rooted in blindness but a faith rooted in reasonable things. 

The Authority and Inspiration of Scripture

In humility, continue to come to God and have a teachable heart.
