  • Use correct hermeneutical principles to present a theologically-defensible explanation, interpretation, and application(s) of any given biblical text in its historical and theological dimensions.
  • Construct a detailed biblically-supported analysis of the central theological themes of the Scriptures relating them to the appropriate categories of systematic theology.
