The Bible Minor Project
One of the value-added distinctives that sets Cedarville apart is that every student, regardless of major, receives a Bible minor. Made up of five courses, the Bible minor stretches students to think about God, His Word, and His world in whole new ways and encourages them to apply Scripture to all areas of their lives. We are excited to serve parents, churches, and the greater Body of Christ by providing these exceptional resources for personal and community study.
New Testament Literature Taught by Dr. Michael McKay
New Testament Literature is the third course in Cedarville's Bible Minor sequence. You’ll survey the entire New Testament, including the historical background of the inter-testamental period, with special attention to key events, the authorship and literary genre of each book, and the unfolding of God’s redemptive purpose through Jesus Christ.
The videos below feature Dr. Michael McKay, Assistant Professor of Biblical Theology, as the course professor. Dr. McKay brings a passion for God's Word and a love for students to his classroom.
