On "Baccalaureate"

Published by: Sam Crabtree
June 4, 2012

Because it’s a word I rarely use all year long, when it comes to the time of year when I use it, I have to remind myself what it means … and how to spell it. The word? Baccalaureate.

What does it mean? It’s a religious service held at an educational institution, or, generally, a religious service held in a formal educational context. The term itself has Latin roots having to do with a student’s advancement.

“Here are three things Jesus did while I was at BCS for four years,” says Benjamin Jensen, who just completed a Master of Divinity degree:
 
1) Through wise and godly teachers, I was shown not only what the Bible says, but how to read it well for myself. Like that old adage: "Give a man a verse, and he'll be fed for a day. Teach a man to read the Word, and he'll be full for a lifetime (and beyond)."

Construction by Jesus

Published by: Sam Crabtree

“Jesus built the house of my education so that my labors were not in vain; he watched over the city of my faith and marriage so my studies were not in vain. He was sovereign over four years of graduate studies so that I need not go late to rest, rise early, nor eat the bread of anxious toil. He gave me, his beloved, rest (Psalm 127:1–2). Jesus sovereignly sustained me and my wife through seminary,” says Brett Toney, who just completed a Master of Divinity at Bethlehem College and Seminary.

Here’s what President Tim Tomlinson told the Bethlehem College and Seminary board of trustees at their recent meeting: “It’s difficult for me to fathom that we are at the end of our third year of operation as Bethlehem College and Seminary. This spring marks the first commencement ceremony of BCS to include AA graduates and M.Div. graduates. This summer we will formally begin the process of accreditation through the Association for Biblical Higher Education.
