This spring the Ridley Institute will host a brand new class in Biblical Theology, “A King Called Jesus.” Students will learn the story of the founding of the Kingdom of God, it’s ruin through sin, and restoration through Jesus as presented from Genesis to Revelation. Students should expect to gain a good working knowledge of the entire Bible, with specific focus on the themes of the Kingdom of God, heavenly citizenship, and the distinctive culture of the followers of Jesus as presented in the Bible. Students will be challenged to think through what Kingdom citizenship means for our lives in contemporary America.

Biblical Interpretation Begins 2.09

This is a graduate level course in conjunction with Trinity School for Ministry.

  • Intensives: February 9-10, 2017
  • Couse Number: BI500 [BT501]
  • Credit Hours: 3
  • St. Andrew’s Church
  • Syllabus (pdf)


This course aims to provide students with an introduction to biblical interpretation organized around four areas of focus: Biblical theology, hermeneutics, the history of biblical interpretation, and exegesis. The course will begin with an overview of various models for discerning the unity of Scripture, including a discussion of premodern, modern, and postmodern approaches to interpreting Scripture. Special emphasis will be placed on the nature of the relationship between authorial intention, providence, and figural readings of Scripture. The middle and final sections of the course will discuss the study of biblical words and texts, the place of literary genre, and the use of the Old Testament in the New. Case studies of various biblical texts will provide opportunities to illuminate these issues in the concrete context of exegesis and interpretation.
