  1. Biblical Theological Seminary’s missional approach to the gospel is the main thrust of the school’s vision and motivation. As an Urban MDiv student the key draw of this program is that EVERY course is contextualized for the purpose of preparing us for Urban Ministry. While many schools may equip students to do Urban Ministry by requiring a certain amount of credits for the sake of an Urban concentration, Biblical’s curriculum in this regard goes further by challenging us to consistently, genuinely, properly and faithfully do cultural exegesis of the Word of God with faithfulness to the scriptures in all that they affirm. The format of cohort classrooms and the culture of the class facilitates a lively and fervent study of the scriptures. A basic approach a Biblical student may have to reading and interpreting scripture after absorbing and utilizing aspects from missional theology are: what presuppositions, previous experiences, prejudices, etc am I bring to the reading of this passage? How does this passage fit in with the missio Dei (Also how does this passage point to Jesus?)? What is the cultural linguistic of the community and people I serve and how do I properly employ this linguistic in a manner that is faithful to the Lord and his Word? Ministry subsumes academics and Biblical gets that. Delight in the Word of God for a Christian may subsume authority and submission to it. Meaning that there are many characteristics of the church’s purpose in this world, but none of them are ends in themselves, many subsume under other headings but all under the Mission of God to reclaim and redeem the entire cosmos, the message of the cross.
