Seminary: Biblical Theology Introduction

In this module you will discover what ‘biblical theology’ is and why it is crucial both for interpreting the Bible faithfully and for wider Christian ministry.

At a Glance

  • A set text to aide and guide your learning
  • A deep dive into specific biblical-theological themes and their applications
