Course Code: SBS I, II, III (CHR 213, 315, 316 in the U of N College of Christian Ministries)
We believe that all Christians are invited to discover and understand God’s heart in his Word. The Bible transforms lives, families, societies and nations! SBS will give you the tools you need to study the Scriptures for yourself, build a firm foundation for your faith, as well as equip you to present it to others
Chronological School of Biblical Studies (CSBS) is a nine month school that lets God’s Word speak for itself. It is based on a inductive and chronological study of the 66 books of the Bible. The goal of the method is not just knowledge and understanding of Scripture, but also revelation in order to apply truth and receive personal transformation. We value practical application, fellowship and prayer. The Holy Spirit reveals, and we are dependent on His guidance and wisdom. These nine months will give you a deeper understanding of God’s redemptive story – from creation to final redemption.
CSBS is an intense full-time course. During these nine months you will read through the Bible five times, and observe and interpret each chapter. The course is based on the understanding that the Bible was not written directly to us, but to a specific group of people at the time each book was written. Therefore we look at Ancient Near Eastern and 1st Century history, as well as literary types and genres of the Bible, so that we can gain understanding of the historical setting and cultural background of each book.
Through this, we seek to discover the author’s original message to the original receivers of the text. Even so, the Bible was written for us. That means that by understanding the author’s intention, we can learn how the message and the principles which transcend time and culture relate to our lives today. We want to let our thoughts, attitudes and societies be challenged by a Biblical worldview.
As staff we commit to walk with you during this season, not just to learn how to study the Bible, but also aiming for application of the word expressed in personal growth and in reaching out to a world that desperately needs an encounter with God’s love and salvation.
Tania comes from Mexico City and did her SBS in YWAM San Diego Baja. She loves tacos with all her heart but also loves tea, fun conversations, reading a good book and she cannot live a day without drinking water. Something she loves about SBS is looking through the plan of redemption, and she likes staffing SBS because it gives her the opportunity to keep studying the word of God more. She believes this is the great investment of her life.
Solveig comes from the west coast of Norway. She did her SBS in Montana, USA. She enjoys creative projects, exploring new places, and baking yummy pastries! Solveig is passionate about seeing sons and daughters of God finding freedom and purpose in the Truth. She believes every believer should have the tools to read and understand the Bible for themselves. Being SBS staff is really her dream job, because she gets to work with the Bible full time, being soaked and transformed by the Word herself as well!
