The master of theology (ThM) with a concentration in New Testament is the highest-level master’s degree available. It will help you deepen your understanding of New Testament scholarship. With all-new 800-level courses unique to the ThM program, you’ll evaluate ministry trends, cultural shifts, and current events in light of sound biblical theology. You’ll learn directly from the original Greek text and engage culturally and cross-culturally from a biblical perspective.
This degree provides students with opportunities to focus on advanced Greek grammar and linguistics, and to explore and analyze surveys related to the historical Jesus. Students will critically evaluate issues and discussions in Pauline studies, including rhetorical analysis and new perspective approaches to Paul. If you desire to specialize in New Testament for teaching, ministry enrichment, or PhD preparation, the ThM will provide mastery of biblical and theological foundations and will enrich your ministry.
