“Carey on the Road” is the Carey Institute’s initiative to provide theological education to the whole people of God, within the local church context. Our church based program is a unique opportunity that allows for a group of students from a cluster of churches, to study theology together without leaving home.
The Carey Institute offers a ten-course undergraduate Certificate in Ministry (CMin). These courses may also be taken at the Diploma in Ministry (graduate) level. The courses are practical, contextual and affordable. They are intended for men and women, new Christians, weary Christians, urban, rural, singles, couples, immigrants, employed, under-employed – everyone who wants to follow Jesus.
FALL 2016 COURSE OFFERING: BIBL 103/503 – Reading the Bible in ContextsFirst Baptist Church, 1311 4 St SW, Calgary, AB Parking: Free parking downtown for the CMin classes! Course description: The message of the Bible takes place in settings and cultures significantly different from those in which we live today. The writers of these Scriptures used contemporary literary tools available to them to present a message that would be understandable to their readers. The challenge for readers today is to uncover the authoritative meaning of the text then and to apply this meaning to their present context. This course seeks to help the student achieve this through examining the different aspects that affect meaning and interpretation of Scripture.
