The Bible elective is designed to delve into apologetic questions about the Bible.

Is it reliable? How did we get the Bible in its current form? Does the historical record confirm what is written in the Old and New Testaments? Doesn’t the Bible contradict Science? Doesn’t it contradict History? Doesn’t it contradict itself?

These questions and many more are addressed in this 7-week course. It features some familiar speakers and some new faces as well as the RZIM team continues to grow.   Regardless of your background in this field, this will be a helpful experience as you hear sound responses to common objections, as well as compelling reasons to treasure the Word of God as reliable and divinely inspired.

This course is an elective course and available only to those who have successfully completed the Core Module. For any questions, please contact
