“Do you yearn to journey deeper into God’s Word – to grasp the big picture in a way that makes sense of all of its parts? Learn how to engage Scripture in three ways: paying attention to details “in the text,” understanding the cultural and historical background “behind the text,” and considering the implications and impact “in front of the text.” BibleJourney offers pathways to learn the content of the Bible, practice proper principles of interpretation and application, and opportunities to engage others in Bible study.
BibleJourney uses seminary faculty and graduates to guide your learning. The program uses rich visuals to illustrate Bible background, with video and images from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Greece and Rome. The program offers tracks for certification as well as supplementary learning events such as study tours to the lands of the Bible.
As an outreach of Gordon-Conwell's Biblical Literacy Project, BibleJourney seeks to train Christian believers and congregations to understand, interpret, apply and teach the Bible. This mission reflects the seminary’s focus on providing evangelical churches with tools to help them “handle accurately the Word of God” (2 Timothy 2:15). These tools result in more effective kingdom service and biblical discernment for a host of denominations and independent movements within evangelical Christianity.
At Gordon-Conwell, we envision creating a generation of believers who:
- Understand Scripture in its own context
- Know how to interpret Scripture
- Can apply Scripture in contemporary culture
This vision includes the education and certification of qualified Bible teachers who can effectively minister in local and parachurch settings. Click here for curriculum information.
