School of Biblical Studies

The SBS (School of Biblical Studies) is an exciting journey through the whole Bible. Students are trained to take up the journey and learn how to independently study the Word of God. The emphasis is looking intensively into each book of the Bible. Each book is read five times, examined in its historical context, and interpreted in-depth. The goal of this inductive Bible study is the daily application of Biblical principles on the personal spiritual life, our learning community and different areas of society. This is the program for the nine-month SBS.

How can one get to know God and His will better except through His Word? Only he who is affected by God's Word is in the position to biblically affect society and the world.

In 2019, we will not run an SBS in the Hurlach Castle.
We feel that God wants to grow our Biblical Studies team so we can offer an SBS in September of 2020.
