The purposes of the minor in Biblical Languages are (1) to provide a basic understanding of grammar in both Hebrew and Greek which is essential to exegete Scripture and (2) to exemplify a biblical approach to exegesis.



Piedmont International University has transformed my life and ministry for the Lord.  I chose this school for its consistent doctrinal teaching at all academic levels and for its dispensational approach to Scripture.  The faculty and staff go the extra mile to help students receive the best education possible.  If you want the best academic training for ministry, choose Piedmont!
