  Welcome to the Cyber Center for Biblical Studies

Podcast: Shaun Tabat's Episode 90 of Author Talks where Shaun and Herb discuss Interpreting the General Letters
This month's featured video is "Tips for Choosing a Seminary." Attending seminary is both an adventure and an investment. Prior to registering in any seminary degree program you should consider yourself a consumer investigating various product options. Thus it pays to investigate seminaries before a visit, make significant inquiries about the seminary during a visit, and take time to interview alumni after a visit. And yes, let the consumer beware.
Choosing a Seminary Part 1: Before the Visit, reveals the need and ways to investigate a seminary's marking jingle, degree programs, and its faculty.

Choosing a Seminary Part 2: During the Visit suggests some topics to inquire about during a visit. Asking about the seminary's accreditation, the time needed to complete a degree program, institutional support of faculty to develop themselves are just a few items to investigate.

A Pastor's Resource Review: This video features Charts on the Book of Hebrews with special attention given to a current pastor's (Tim Sprankle) use of the book as a tool to stream line his study of the book of Hebrews in preparing weekly expository sermons for Hebrews. Pastor Sprankle is the senior pastor of Leesburg Grace Brethren Church (Northern Indiana).

THANK YOU  A special thank you is extended to Scott Barger Pastor of New Horizon Community Church, for filming and editing the videos.
