MASTER OF ARTS IN BIBLICAL EXPOSITION
The Master of Arts in Biblical Exposition (MABE) is designed to train men and women to serve their communities through the relevant preaching of God’s Word. Students will learn to prepare and deliver expository sermons that impact communities and transform lives. Throughout the program, students will develop the skills to assess their own unique ministry contexts and communicate effectively as change agents.
Potential Career and Educational Paths
The MABE would prepare students to serve in various capacities within the church or para-church settings in either professional positions or as lay leaders. The program allows students to develop new ministries in response to an identified need in their church or community. The program would be useful in developing students who are able to preach regularly in various ministry contexts.
Purpose and Goals
Distinct Areas of Interest
The MABE offers the creative research normally found in a Doctor of Ministry degree on the Masters level. Throughout the program students advance their capacities for interpretation and preaching in order to transform their communities for Christ.
The MABE program is run on a cohort system. Each semester a new cohort begins. Please refer to the links below to find your cohort's schedule.
- Prepare expository sermons from all genres of Scripture.
- Formulate a philosophy of preaching that integrates theology, hermeneutics, and cultural perspectives and practice.
- Implement plans to foster character development.
- Deliver creative and engaging sermons with relevance for particular communities.
A total of 36 credit hours must be completed to receive the Master of Arts in Biblical Exposition. This program is offered through Moody Bible Institute Distance Learning as a cohort program and is effective for students admitted in fall 2014 through summer 2015. This curriculum will remain in effect for students who remain active and do not change programs. Students who fail to complete this program within five years will be discontinued and required to apply through the Office of Admissions into the current academic catalog’s requirements.
