“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.
