The Bible Seminary (TBS) hosted two "State of the Seminary" BBQ's early in 2018 that included brief presentations of groundbreaking research and discoveries by Dr. Douglas Petrovich, Professor of Biblical History and Exegesis, and Dr. Scott Stripling, Provost and Professor of Biblical Archaeology and Church History. Dr. K. Lynn Lewis, President, also shared a summary of TBS history, current status, and exciting strategic plans. The "State of the Seminary 2018" video shares select content captured from the April 21, 2018 event.
The historical credibility of the account of the Israelite's sojourn-exodus has been nothing but an object of criticism...yet with the present work, a new day has dawned.
For about 150 years, scholars have attempted to identify the language of the world's first alphabetic script, and to translate some of the inscriptions that use it. Until now, their attempts have accomplished little more than identifying most of the pictographic letters and translating a few of the Semitic words. Dr. Petrovich's research appears to resolve all of the disputed letters, identify the proto-consonantal language as Hebrew, allow for the translation of 16 potentially significant inscriptions dating to the time of the Hebrews in Egypt, and reveal inscriptions found in Egypt that expressly name three unique biblical figures - Asenath, Ahisamach, and Moses.
In the debate over the historical reliability of the Bible, archaeology appears to be tipping the scales to the right. Those who question the reliability of the Bible would do well to examine their own presuppositions.
In the last century, archaeology has yielded more inscriptions and artifacts than the previous six thousand years of recorded history. Synchronisms between the biblical text and physical remains continue to accrue in record numbers. Dr. Stripling has enjoyed a front row seat for some of these through his archaeological experiences as Director of Excavations at Shiloh, Director of the Khirbet el-Maqatir project, Supervisor of the Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project in Jordan, and Supervisor of the Jerusalem Temple Mount Salvage Project in Israel. The steady stream of discoveries that provide more and more factual evidence that the Bible is both reliable and true increases the faith of believers and helps reinforce the discipline of apologetic outreach to doubters seeking evidence that demands a verdict.
We live in a world where people don't believe Scripture is true, and because they don't believe Scripture is true they don't even believe God exists.
Established in 2010, The Bible Seminary offers comprehensive, strategic training in all 66 books of the Bible to aspiring and current ministry leaders through several graduate degree and non-degree programs. Strategies include instruction in the standard historical, theological, and practical disciplines critical to developing professional skills for 21st century ministry, as well as experiential education that directly engages graduate students in mentored local church or para-church ministry throughout their degree programs. TBS also works to provide cutting-edge ministry resource tools, community-based experiences that include on-site visits with regional ministry professionals, study tour opportunities, and assistance to help students grade with NO ($0) seminary debt.
Although already recognized by The Knowledge Review magazine as one of the 10 Most Preferred Divinity Schools for Religious Studies 2017, TBS is still currently a young institution and engaged in the arduous process of pursuing accreditation. During this extended entreprenurial phase, generous donors continue to provide more than 80% of the critical resouces necessary to sustain and grow The Bible Seminary.
WE INVITE YOUR SUPPORT, and appreciate your partnership in helping train up current and future generations of Christian leaders and helping TBS provide actual, factual evidence that the Bible is true and that there is a God who loves people and has an exciting plan for their life.
