Online Doctor of Biblical Studies Degree in Biblical History

Biblical history is about so much more than the events recorded in the sixty-six Books of Scripture.  The Apostle John ended his Gospel account by saying, "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written" (John 21:25).  The same is true of the whole of Biblical history.


Even the most advanced students of the Scriptures often find the chronology of the historical events of the Bible vague, and challenging.  For example, just trying to name the Kings of the Southern and Northern Kingdoms of Israel can be daunting and confusing.  In addition, few Bible scholars are well versed in the Intertestamental period of Biblical history, and relate to the phrase "The Four Hundred Years of Silence," more literally than symbolically.


This doctoral program in Biblical History is designed to change all of that, and to put the advanced Bible scholar in the driver's seat of the flow of Biblical history from creation to the early church era.  The preacher of Ecclesiastes wrote, "He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end" ( Ecclesiastes 3:11).  While it is not possible for any human being in this life to know all of God's works  "from the beginning to the end," it is possible to gain a broad and competent understanding of the works of God in the flow of world history.  The mature minister who loves the Bible, and desires to be better informed about the place of Israel and the Church in world history, will find this program a treasure trove of information and learning.
