This has likely been asked before but my searches didn't turn anything up, I'd like to do a self-directed course of study through the MobileEd courses that gets me through a path similar to a MA in Biblical Studies or an MDiv. I understand it can't possibly be the same and I mean no disrespect to anyone's education. I don't kn.ow any other way to phrase it. I can't afford seminary but want more of a Biblical Education and want to organize it somewhat. I reached out to sales and support and other than a list I was sent here to the forums in case anyone has ever crafted anything like that for themselves. There are so many courses and bundles within an area such as New testament it's hard to know where to start and what builds on what.

If this has been discussed please feel free to redirect me to that topic.

Thank you in advance

If you really want a structured program I would recommend Redemption Seminary. It's has affordable programs that use Mobile Ed courses along with face-to-face time with qualified mentors. Here is the site for more info:

Beyond that, we have a number of bundles that could help you achieve your goal. We offer several different levels of certificate programs on a variety of different topics:

We also have some topical bundles that when combined would come pretty close to covering classes you would find in an MDiv program:

There is some overlap between the certificate programs and the courses in those bundle. If you don't pursue Redemption Seminary I would recommend picking a topic you want to focus on first and get the bundle or certificate program that best reflects that…for example the New Testament Foundational Certificate Program if you want to start with the NT.

Miles, thank you for taking the time. This is closer to what I am looking for although initially I really just want to focus on Biblical Studies and languages. I looked at the certificate programs but even within the area of NT studies there were several different ones and it's not clear if they build upon one another, at what point it's good to add courses on Biblical Interpretation? That is why I was hoping there might be a roadmap or someone whose done something like that.

There are a number of certificates and then no shortage of bundles that group some things together.

I've been working my way through the Biblical Interpretation Certification programs (3 levels).  Just like college/seminary when you are in residence, the classes, the supplemental classes, and order of classes that make the most sense depends on your interests and background - and your personality it terms of when you want to tackle those that you take solely because they are required.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I would recommend starting with the Foundational Certificates. The New Testament Foundational Certificate comes with BI101 Introducing Biblical Interpretation: Contexts and Resources. That would probably be your best starting point. Then do NT101 Introducing New Testament: Its Structure and Story.

After that the other courses (NT281 How We Got the New Testament; NT211 Introducing the Gospels and Acts: Their Background, Nature, and Purpose; NT222 Introducing the Epistles and Revelation: Their Setting and Message) can be completed in any order. NT211 and NT222 were designed as companion courses that cover different areas of the New Testament in more depth and detail than NT101.
