Important Message for all of our e-SBS and fbSBS students

Because of the new initiative of Online Extension Studies courses in the University of the Nations we no longer need to have these two separate online sbs courses, the e-SBS and the fbSBS.  From 1st September2016, students of both of these courses will have access to our newly prepared single course, the Online SBS.  The module configuration has changed slightly but the material is the same.  Please contact your staff to get the needed module keys so you can log into the book you are presently studying and continue your studies without interruption.

For new applicants:
  We are working on a new website which will be ready soon.  Until this is finished please use the e-SBS application form to apply for this newly prepared Online SBS.  If you have further questions please contact your staff, or email:


fbSBS, e-SBS and fbBCC Demo Courses

Click on this link to check out the fbSBS, e-SBS and fbBCC course.  The first three units are available for you to see what the course looks like and how it works.  The first explains what Inductive Bible Study is and how it works, and the second is a step by step approach using the letter of Paul to Philemon.  The third unit is a study of Titus, and explains the method often used to record our discoveries in the SBS, and why this method is used.  Click on the 'DEMO for the fbSBS, e-SBS and fbBCC' option, and then on the course name.  You should choose the ‘Log in as a Guest’ option to enter the course.  Click on this link to watch a short video presentation about the difference between the three courses, the fbSBS, the e-SBS and the fbBCC.

What is Inductive Bible Study?

What method of applying the inductive approach to Bible Study does the School of Biblical Studies use?
