The Bible
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.

METHOD OF STUDY

Attention: Read all of the instructions on this page before proceeding to the class.
 

  • You are required to read the Textbook in conjunction with the Workbook.
    Textbook - The Doctrinal Chaos of the Translations, by Dr. T.E. VanBuskirk

  • You are required to read the Workbook in conjunction with the Textbook.
    Workbook - Doctrinal Chaos of the Translations by Dr. VanBuskirk

  • You are required to look up every scripture referenced in both the textbook and the workbook, in your KJV Bible.

  • SECTION TESTS:  Links to the section tests are in the textbook.  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 often must be the exact wording of the textbook, workbook, or the Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question.
    - Tests
    are to be taken after completing each corresponding section in the workbook.
    NOTE: If you miss any questions on any test, whether or not you received a passing score, then you should restudy that section of the textbook or workbook, whichever is appropriate, and find all of the correct answers within the textbook, the workbook, or the Bible, whichever is appropriate, to the questions that you missed on the test.  You will have your copy of the test which was automatically emailed to you with the correct answers on it for comparison purposes to make sure you have found the correct answer in the text(s).  It is suggested that only after you have found all of the correct answers in the text(s), then you may go on to the next section.  This will allow you the best opportunity to gain the most from the course content.

  • ATTENDANCE
    It is suggested that overall attendance for the entire course be 16 weeks.

    It is suggested that attendance for for each lesson be a minimum of 2 weeks.

  • We do not keep records for Monitoring Only students.  However, if you want to keep a record of your progress through the course you may download and print a COURSE RECORD FORM.  On it you can keep track of all pertinent information for each test and for the course overall.

  • FINAL TEST: The link to the Final Test is at the end of the textbook.
    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 any test, then you will need to Retrieve the Password and, upon receiving the Password, take the Final Test for the course.
    - If you  fail the Final Test then you should restudy the relevant sections in the workbook, textbook, or the Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question, corresponding to the questions missed and all of the section tests previously taken and then retake the final test. Repeat this process until you pass the Final Test.
    If you miss any questions on the Final Test, even though you have passed it, then you should review the textbook and/or workbook and all of the section tests and find the correct answers in the textbook and/or workbook to the questions you answered incorrectly.  You will have received a copy of the Final Test with the correct answers on it and you may use those answers to verify that you have located the correct answers in the study materials.


    Open both the textbook and the workbook when you need to study them both at the same time; and then size them to fit side by side on your screen.
