Chronological School of Biblical Studies

17 September 2017 – 17 June 2018.

Come to Cambridge, the city that was the cradle of the English Reformation, to complete a nine month Revival & Reformation Chronological School of Biblical Studies.

We are excited that 2017 is the 500th  anniversary of Luther nailing his 95 theses to the Wittenburg door in 1517, igniting the Reformation.

We believe that 2017 is going to be another significant year! We would love you to join us, as we study the bible in depth for nine months. We are passionate about worship, prayer and evangelism. We are praying to see another missions movement across the globe, fuelled by a fresh revelation of God’s word. Come and be part of seeing the word and the Spirit come together in this exciting adventure!

About the school

The Chronological School of Biblical Studies is a 9 month course in which students discover, in chronological order, the story of God’s love for His people. Students will dive in deep by studying all 66 books of the Bible. They will learn how to teach and transform nations by going on local outreaches and will have the option to go on an international outreach at the end of their school.
Personalized Teaching
During the school, students survey each book and discover the big picture, while also digging into the details, paragraph by paragraph. We place an emphasis on understanding the cultural and historic background of each author and original reader of each book. In C-SBS we also consider where each book fits into the big picture of the Gospel story. Then, the student can interpret Scripture with the mindset of the original reader. Finally, that student can take those truths that transcend time and culture, and apply them to their own lives.
As a foundation, C-SBS gives its students hands-on instruction in the principles of observation, interpretation, and application. C-SBS staff will meet weekly with the students to aid in their personal growth, understanding of Scripture, and application of the inductive method.
How We Study
Below is an outline of the “Inductive Study Method”. You can use this flow to study any book of the Bible in context. Once you have studied the history and culture of the author of each book, and of the people whom the Holy Spirit intended to reach, then you can use this study process:
OBSERVE the text until you “see” the clear meaning of the words.
INTERPRET the most likely message to the ORIGINAL readers (not to you).
APPLY those principles in YOUR life and culture today.
Lather, rinse, and repeat…
This inductive process uses the commonly accepted historical facts surrounding each book of the Bible in order for YOU to develop YOUR OWN well-informed conclusions regarding the most likely meaning of Biblical passages. It’s a “filter” that you can confidently use for the rest of your life.
Costs
The C-SBS costs £6800.  This covers all teaching, accommodation and food for the whole nine months.
