Preliminary Theological Certificate

From July 2012 until January 2014 a lot of my spare time was invested in completing a Preliminary Theological Certificate with Moore College.

The six modules (shown in the image above) covered the following topics:
  • Introduction to the Bible
  • New Testament 1
  • Old Testament 1
  • Doctrine 1
  • Paul's letter to the Ephesians
  • Promise to Fulfilment.
This course was introductory in nature, but very good.  However, if one starts to use the additional recommended reading material it can begin to develop an individual into quite the lay theologian that has; a sound understanding of scripture, is able to teach the elements of scripture to others, is able to preach if necessary and is able to correctly read and interpret the Bible for themselves.

Overall I graduated with a second class honours.  The course is not nationally accredited, but that definitely does not mean it is not worthwhile!  I believe the course structure will be changing to an online delivery format at the end of 2014, but those wanting to learn more about God and His Word would find this course very beneficial regardless of the mode of delivery.
