A Brief Description of Bethel Series Online Course
From the first lesson, the Bethel Series begins to acquaint you with the narratives of the Old and New Testaments, and presents the themes  of the Scriptures in the clearest, most systematic manner possible.  Soon you’ll begin to see the interrelationship of themes, events, and concepts within God’s Word and gain a vital new appreciation for how each part of the Scriptures relates to the whole, and vice versa!

An investment of time—a lifetime of rewards!
The Bethel Series Online is offered through the J.E. Massey Center for Ministry and Leadership at Mid-America Christian University, and at two levels of study: The Bethel Series Certificate or MACU College Credit.
Both levels of study will require a commitment and investment of your time, but the rewards of your efforts will benefit you the rest of your life. Students should plan on committing at least five hours of Scripture reading each week. Some students do the Bible reading assignments as part of their devotional times. The course also includes digital Concept Memory Flashcards that you can review on your smart phone, computer, or tablet! Those taking the course for college credit should anticipate additional assignments.
