We have some great news to share! Starting in January 2023, the Fully Equipped Bible Institute is offering online biblical studies programs with three distinct program emphases for pastors and Christian leaders. The online courses within each program are high quality, taught by pastors and seasoned ministry leaders, all with academic degrees at the masters level or above. While we work on our accreditation, our course costs are at least half of the cost of other academic institutions.
We have two great courses starting in January. Introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics and Biblical Priorities both start the second week of January and can be taken live online via Zoom, or at your own pace through pre-recorded lecture.
Professor: Dr. Stephen Isaac
Start Date: Weds., Jan. 11, 2023

College credit or audit available
The Introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics course teaches serious students of God’s Word the standardized processes and principles used to accurately understand what a scriptural text means and to comprehend what the author’s message—written, oral, or visual—is endeavoring to communicate.
The Purpose of This Online Bible Course
The aim of Biblical Hermeneutics is that at all points we must take the Bible as it is—the final form of the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts that we possess. The sincere student should desire not only the knowledge of God’s divine truth, but also the meaning and wisdom of it – they are distinctly different. One is spiritually revealed, the other rationally concluded. One is divinely apprehended, the other scholastically comprehended. Eventually all good Biblical interpretation must be revered as a righteous process. That is the process that we are about to embark upon. I welcome you one and all.

Biblical Priorities – An Exploration Into What Jesus Said Matters Most is an 8-week online Christian discipleship course. The course focuses first on what it means to love God with our heart, soul, mind and strength. It includes Scriptural contexts to understand why this commandment is of utmost importance. <br>
The second focus is the command to love our neighbor as ourselves. It includes a deep Scriptural dive into defining one’s neighbor, examination of predispositions that hinder love, and the practical application of loving one’s neighbor.
The course is appropriate for believers of any Christian maturity level, challenging all of us to love more wholeheartedly. Students will gain a more profound understanding of what loving God and loving one’s neighbor meant when the Commandments were written and what they should mean to believers today. The Biblical Priorities course equips students with practical tools that empower them to grow in right relationship with God and with man.
We provide formal biblical education for pastors and Christian leaders serving in difficult and dangerous places. Many of these selfless leaders do not have the financial means to access formal biblical training, which is viewed as the greatest need of the global church by the World Evangelical Alliance. They need financial assistance to enroll in our online biblical studies programs. As God leads, please consider investing in fully equipping them for fruitful ministry through an academic scholarship. Just $50 per month funds a scholarship.
