Distant and Independent Learning with the Berea School of Theology on Internet Syllabus


(Ecumenical)

Berea School of Theology provides distant learning since 2003. Distant learning allows students to take courses along our syllabus on their own time and at their own pace. Our distant courses are gradually available on our website anytime and do not operate on the traditional quarter or semester format. From the time of enrolment, students have six months to work through the course (s) material they have chosen. At the end of each course, at his or her own pace, the student will be presented with a questionnaire as examination. Students may enrol in a single course or participate in several courses at one time. The available Berea Theology courses are found on these pages. We hope to work out at least twelve mayor units as soon as possible.

 Short Studies in the Psalms

This short study of the Psalm is a revised edition of a previous work of mine, having left behind full biblical quotations as in previous edition, in order that the reader may himself search for the verse in his or her own Bible to better imprint the “Word of God” in their minds as a prayerful consideration. God has bestowed us with an intelligent mind, as much as He has given us a sound body. He has also given us vitality as much as receptivity. Let us fill our vessels full to the brim with His Word, the Divine. God blesses you.

A Course on Apologetics in Preparation

 

Higher Criticism, Higher than What?

 

“Higher criticism” is not used in a popular sense of the word at all, and may convey a wrong impression to the ordinary man. Also, ir is not meant to convery the idea of superiority. It is simply a term of contrast. Rather, it is used in contrast to the phrase, “Lower Criticism.”

 

One of the most important branches of Evangelical theology is called the science of Biblical criticism, which has for its object the stdy of the history and contents, origins and purposes of the various books of the Bible, the Sacred Word of God. In the early stages of the science Biblical criticism was devoted to two great branches, the Lower, and the Higher. The Lower criticism was utilized to designate the study of the text of the Scripture, and included the investigation of the manuscripts, and the different readings in the various versions and codices and manuscripts in order that we may be sure we have the original words as they were written by the Divinely inspired writers. In fact, the term generally used  is “Textual Criticism”. There are Lower Critics, but in contrast, “Higher Criticism” is employed to designate the study of the historic origins, the dates, and authorship of the various books of the Bible, and that great branch of study which in the technical language of twenty-first century theology is known as “Introduction”. It is a very valuable branch of Biblical science, and is of the highest importance as an auxiliary in the interpretation of the Word of God. The term “Higher Criticism”, after all, means nothing more than the study of the literary structure of the various books of the Bible, and more especially of the Old Testament, most laudable in itself. How is then, that the Higher Criticism has become identified in the popular mind with attacks upon the Bible and the supernatural character of the Holy Scriptures? The reason is this, no study maybe requires so devout a spirit and so exalted a faith in the supernatural as in the pursuit of Higher Criticism; It demands at once the ability of the student and the simplicity of the believing child of the Most High. For without faith no one can explain the Sacred Scriptures, and without theological scholarship no one can possibly investigate historic origins. Introduction to the Critical Study and Knowledge of the Sacred Scripture is the greatest work ever, and invaluable in its vast reach of information for the study of God’s Word. Pithily enough, the work of Higher Critic has not always been pursued in a reverent spirit nor even in the spirit of scientific and Christian scholarship. Does anyone doubt that the Bible possesses apologetic dialogues? In the Acts of the Apostles we read in chapter 17: 17: “Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.” (KJV) Look at the Biblical structure anywhere in the Sacred Scriptures; look at its completeness; look at it in the clearness, fullness and holiness of its teachings; look at it in its sufficiency to guide every man that truly seeks light under the saving knowledge of God. Apologetics helps finding the answers defending the Christian Faith and Living of the children of God. Apologetics cover topics about the reliability of the Bible, biblical people, answering  Christian Living and much more.
