Teaching Specialties Areas
The Bible Exposition (BE) Department exists historically at Dallas Theological Seminary out of a commitment of its founders to ground all of the Seminary’s students in all 66 books of the Word of God. This perspective is distinct among most academic departments of Biblical Studies at seminaries. The goals of the BE Department at DTS include aiding the student:
- to discover the unifying message of each book and how the various parts of a book support this message
- to demonstrate how the message of each book contributes to the overall biblical theology of the Scriptures,
- to develop a consistent, literal, grammatical, historical, literary, and theological approach to Scripture, and
- to guide students into an understanding of valid applications of Scripture.
This is done with a primary focus on the biblical text while still seeking to be versed in the current issues of academic research.
