The basis for all knowledge about God and His will for our lives.
This course will be a comprehensive study of the Scriptures as a whole. Origins, inspiration, preservation, and comparisons between the various major translations and the original texts from which they are derived are just some of the subjects that will be addressed.
When you complete this course you should have a good working knowledge of the history and reliability of God's Word, specifically the KJV, as compared with the other major translations and the various lines of original texts from which all translations have been derived. In addition you will also have the resources needed to dispute any heresies concerning it's inspiration in the originals and its preservation in the English since 1611 and in the New Testament and Old Testament original languages for the last three millennia.

you read and submit the Testing
Instructions form if you have not
already done so.
- All test links are in the html version of the workbook.
- RESULTS PAGE of tests: Sometimes tests do not submit properly. This can be due to a glitch in the test, a problem with your computer, or an Internet problem. Therefore, students are required to save a copy of the Results Page of every test that they take. This is necessary so that if a test does not submit properly the student will have a copy of the Results page to submit to us upon our request. (Do NOT send it unless we request that you do so.) The copy of the Results Page can then be placed in your academic file in lieu of the actual test.
You can click HERE for instructions for saving a copy of the Results Page to your computer. You may want to print out a copy of those instructions or else you can save an electronic copy to your computer.
- SECTION TESTS: Links to the section tests are in the workbook. All section tests are open book tests, which means you may use your textbook and workbook to assist you while taking the test. Because the tests are "open book" then the answers must be the exact wording of the textbook, workbook, or the Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question. Take those tests after completing each corresponding section in the workbook.
- FINAL TEST: The link to the Final Test is at the end of the workbook. Once you have completed all sections of the workbook and completed reading the textbook, and passed all of the corresponding tests, and found the correct answers to any questions missed on all tests, and submitted the Finish Sign In form, then you may Retrieve the Password and, upon receiving the Password, take the Final Test for the course.
For the complete course: Overall attendance for the entire course is 16 weeks minimum. The Final Test may be taken on or after the first day of the 17th week, computed from the date of your submission of the Sign In form to "Begin" this course. A Sign In form marked "Finish" is required before submitting the Password Retrieval form.
For each lesson in the course: Each lesson requires a minimum of 2 weeks attendance.
Section tests can be turned in on or after the 14th day of the required two weeks of attendance. The 2 weeks required attendance for the next lesson begins the day AFTER successfully passing the current test and then finding the answers to all questions missed either in the workbook, the textbook, or the Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question.
