Biblical Studies (BS)
Build your knowledge of the Bible and form a foundational biblical worldview to prepare you for vocational ministry or graduate study.
Why Biblical Studies (BS)?
A Biblical Studies (BS) degree moves from the biblical basics to the advanced study of Greek and Hebrew, along with instruction on effective ministry practice and Christian discipleship. Courses concentrate on Christian theology, biblical hermeneutics, New Testament Greek and Biblical Hebrew, and the history of the church.

Kevin McFadden teaches New Testament courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. Before coming to Cairn he studied New Testament Interpretation at Southern Seminary and taught for three years in the Christian Studies department at Louisiana College. He is originally from Michigan.
One of his most formative experiences was a mission trip through Inter-City Baptist Church to Tanzania where he saw the sufficiency of Scripture in action as God used his word to build up his people.
Dr. Brian Luther teaches various Bible classes, including Pentateuch, Old Testament, wisdom literature, and the Gospels. His research interests include ancient Jewish and Christian biblical interpretation, as well as interpreting and applying biblical narrative today.
Before pursuing biblical studies, Dr. Luther earned his doctorate in electrical engineering. Among more serious pursuits, this background prepared him to coach a high school robotics team, an opportunity that he looks forward to having again someday.
