Biblical & Systematic Theology Courses
We are excited about the prospect of your taking courses through SCOPE. Formal admission to BJU is not required to take a course by distance learning, and approval to take a distance learning course does not imply admission to BJU or to a particular degree program.
STh 601: Systematic Theology
A study of the nature, necessity, methods and materials of theology; and the application of the principles of systematic theology to the scriptural revelation about God, man and sin, following a biblical dispensational hermeneutic. Preparation of an ordination doctrinal statement for ministry students; theological reading summaries for others. Students from a Baptist heritage will be expected to clearly articulate Baptist theological distinctives and church polity. Each student’s doctrinal statement/theological summaries will be prepared so as to reflect a biblical dispensational hermeneutic.
STh 675: Theology of Missions & Evangelism
An examination and systemization of the teaching of Scripture on the subject of world evangelism. Includes a comparison and contrast of the biblical model with contextualized theologies, such as Minjung theology, Black theology, Hispanic theology and African theology.
