Master of Biblical Studies in New Testament

Program Overview

The Master of Biblical Studies in New Testament is a 65 semester hour program. The MBS (New Testament) requires 20 semester hours of language work in New Testament Greek. The program is an exciting program, challenging the student to grasp a thorough working knowledge of the Greek language. As the practical ministry aspects have been removed, this program is designed primarily for those who are seeking to enhance their teaching and writing skills under the umbrella of the church. Students will receive training in key New Testament books, New Testament Greek, key theological doctrines, and research.
The basic language work consists of four core courses in New Testament Greek. The courses progress from basic grammar to syntax to intermediate translation. After completing the four core NT Greek courses, the student is required to pass the NT Greek Exit Exam. (See “Degree Requirements” below). Once the Exit Exams have been passed with a “B” or better, students will progress to advanced directed translation courses in NT Greek and Septuagint Greek, with each course requiring translation of over 600 lines of text per course.
The MBS (New Testament) degree does not require a master’s thesis. Instead, students’ critical thinking and writing skills will be developed through assignments throughout the required curriculum.
The MBS (New Testament) program is an advance-at-your-own-pace program. Students are required to maintain a 2.50 GPA in order to graduate.
