The Theological Exegesis track is uniquely designed to equip pastors in the art of theological exegesis of the Bible. The track fosters an appreciation for reading of the Bible that is canonical, creedal, and contextual. Students learn how to draw on the rich history of exegetical theology for the sake of interpreting the Bible for the church today.
A graduate in the Theological Exegesis Track will be capable of:
• Understanding the integration of biblical teaching with the disciplines of systematic and historical theology
• Interpreting the whole Bible in a Christ-centered way
• Using the history of exegesis (classical and modern) for their own ministry
• Reading the Bible in a canonically, creedally, and contextually sensitive way

The final project is meant to be a concrete case study. The student will offer theological exegesis of some portion of Scripture, showing its canonical testimony, its creedal importance, and its contemporary relevance for the author’s or other contexts. In so doing the student will draw on classical and modern resources and demonstrate an ability to read critically within the tradition of Christian theological exegesis. The project concludes with a practical guide to employing this material in the church, whether as a teaching series or a framework for some other ministry.
