The purpose of the School of Biblical Studies (SBS) is to help our students have a solid biblical foundation that will guide them in every area of their lives. We believe that once people have a strong biblical foundation their ministries, marriage, finance, counseling, etc. will be guided by God’s word. This leads to effectiveness and to God’s glory.
In this program students will study every book of the New Testament using the inductive method of Bible study. Our goal is for students to grasp the message of each book of the New Testament, as well as the big picture of the whole New Testament.
Concerning biblical knowledge, Thais are trained to memorize what is taught by their teachers. However, they have never been trained to study the Bible for themselves with the right methods. As a result, they cannot apply biblical truth into Thai culture effectively. The School of Biblical Studies helps students study the Bible on their own. After 4 months of hard training about the inductive study method with The New Testament, they are able to interpret Scriptures using the right method.
In the SBS each student spends about 6-8 hours in study each day. It is a lot of work but the result is well worth a solid Biblical foundation for life and ministry. We are open to non-DTS students as well as DTS student to attend this school.
Which book do you like and how has your life been changed by it?
"Usually, I like the gospels, and we just studied the book of John. I think this book gives me a very interesting truth of Jesus. I like that when he prayed while he was going to suffer and walk through the crucifixion, that he doesn’t want to follow his own will but God’s will. I personally would ask God to help me pass the tough time quickly, but when I think about how Jesus responded to his suffering, it challenges me to take away my selfishness and I want to be different."

Since we've been through a month and half which book you think you learn from it the most?
"For myself, I think I've learned from Philipians the most. I felt touched by God's grace. I've learned that being humble and giving up my rights bring me joy.
"Ministry wise, I've learned the most from Ephesian and 1 Corinthians. We just started a church a few years ago, so we have a lot of new believers who came from Thai-Buddhist background. Learning about spiritual warfare from Ephesian helped me to be able to teach and help young people in my church know what to do in Spiritual warfare, to know who they are in Christ and to realize that they don't need to be afraid of evil spirits. 1 Corinthians helps me know what to do and how to deal with issues in my church a lot better."

What have you learned the most from your school?
“I like the fact that Paul, Peter, John and other writers wrote such a powerful message to encourage the original readers while they were facing a real problem in a real situation. I’ve learned about their hearts for God’s people and how they gave up their own rights in order to build up the body of Christ throughout the world. I felt such a need for ministry to equip and train God’s people to be His glory temple (Ephesians 4:11-13)”
