Topics Available For Research

jars-111491_640ISDET expects every student, from bachelors up to doctoral level, to take up a research project and submit a thesis. The scope, depth, and length of the thesis varies with the program. More details of the way it should be done is given in the Admission/Student Handbook.

Please keep in mind that the purpose of the tuition-free ISDET courses is not to produce theological degree-holders but to develop Christian communicators, leaders, and ideologues for the church. Therefore  ISDET expects students to pick up practical and useful topics for research so that the thesis they submit is of use to others. Each thesis should, preferably, be on a topic that can be used as a textbook by others. Exotic topics, which are of no immediate relevance to the church, are not encouraged.

    I would like to do my research in Israel’s Ancient Enemies / cultures / people groups.
    I have done preliminary work in this are, but there is much left to explore and investigate. That is if i am accepted into the doctorate in Biblical Archeology program.
    I literally just completed my degree in Masters in Biblical Archeology with a school much like this one. The president of which is Dr Johnson C. Philip in India. I have known him for many years and even wrote a few courses for him in selected subjects concurrent to my dissertation research.
    I also wanted you to know that I am a severely disabled veteran with memory problems and spinal cord difficulties that sometimes limit my academic endeavors. That just means there are days when I cannot study, research, or write very much at all – sometimes none. I work better with printed materials because i can highlight, dog ear pages, and make notes as I read. For digital mediums I can still accomplish the work, it just takes a little longer and and more physical effort. I don’t mind putting in the effort. The root of this endeavor goes back to 1990 when i was studying at the University of Cairo West and doing field work and studies in Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Greece, Iraq, Germany and Italy. I also was fortunate enough to gain private entrance to museums in London, Berlin, Cairo, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to name a few. I was in the military at the time and travel was easily available. I served in two theaters in the desert in two different eras. Anyway, I do hope i am accepted and we can take this adventure together.

  13. A REQUEST FOR PARTNERSHIP
    Praise the Lord,

    We have been very happy to get your Bible College information on internet about how you are really working, so it’s really makes us feel very pleased and it’s why we’ve taken this opportunity to write to you.

    We’re Naivera Apostolic Church, and we’re Congolese refugees we are in Tanzania especially in Nyarugusu camp Kasulu Kigoma region.

    The camp has more than 100.000 people and also has more than 100 churchs in it.

    Regarding the interest of people to learn the word of the Lord, we decided to open the Bible school, but those getting diplomas from our Bible school are so many but still haven’t got any opportunity to carry on with their studies due to the lack of Bible college here in the camp.

    For that reason, we would humbly come to you asking for PARTNERSHIP with your Bible college, so that those who’re getting their diplomas should go ahead with their studies.

    We have every confidence that you’ll answer our request.

    On behalf of the Naivera Apostolic Church,
    Bishop, Dr. Benjamin Elunga W’Elunga

  14. Thank you so much for supporting the less privilege. God bless all the stakeholders who are making this possible for the word of God to spread

  15. Ademuyiwa Emmanuel Ifeoluwa says:

  21. Glen says:

    Greetings from Australia

    My doctrinal area of greatest interest is Biblical eschatology and therefor it is no surprise that the book of Revelation is my favorite text. However 1 area of great relevance to this is holistic Bible chronology from creation “week” almost 6,000 years ago.
    I do not say “about” 6,000 but almost, as the second coming will be 2,000 lunar/solar years from the crucifixion year of Messiah.
    Mr James Ussher`s terminus point of the Lord`s birth for about the 4,000 year mark is wrong.

    The thesis I would love to do first is something I needed, but did not have as a new christian 30 + years ago in Bible college. And that was an accurate chronological summary outline of God`s whole 7,000 year plan for man. Yes I am definitely a Pre-Millennial believer of the Lord`s 2nd advent and think of myself as an historical Chilialist,
    I am indebted to Tim Warner`s book “The Time of the End” for pointing in the right direction. However he got some critical aspects wrong. That if they were properly understood would have led to more than a few, major chronological Gordian knots being resolved.

    Thus some of the practical outcomes would be apologetic for the age of the earth and therefor creation in 6 earth rotation days and a knowledge of God`s own calendar and how it works, as given in Lev 23-26. It can be shown that the Hebrews may have “lost, mutilated God`s calendar” yet God Himself has been orchestrating His History with man according to accurate predetermined and appointed times.

    Once this has been demonstrated it is but a simple thing to prove that the Rapture is Post-Trib Tishri 1 and the actual return to earth is Tishri 10 the most Holy day of Atonement. And that the 7 bowls that are the 3rd woe, even the 7th trumpet occur during those 10 days of AWE. These 10 days transition between the 6,000 year age of man and the soon coming age of the 1,000 year kingdom on earth, the day of the Lord.

    The basic outline to demonstrate is that day 10 of creation is the 1st ever day of Atonement when God clothed Adam and Eve with “sacrificed animal skins” probably goats. God set them “free” and thus the 1st jubilee year is year 1 of creation AM. The flood is Jubilee year 1651. Death of Noah and birth of Abram 2001. Exodus 2501. Shekinah glory to Solomon`s 13 year old temple 3001. Cyrus` decree 3501 and Crucifixion 4001. 2nd advent 6001 eternity starts 7001 AM = year from creation.

    What will also come out of this is that the divided kingdom is 411 years to the destruction of the Temple by fire but 391 to the 1st captivity with the prophet Daniel. Add 40 years for Solomon and you have 431 years during which the sabbath years AND Jubilee sabbaths were not observed and thus 70 years for those in the 1st captivity. Yes Solomon sole reigned for 60 years not just the 40 given from the residing of God`s glory in Solomon`s Temple. The Hebrews sometimes measured time from significant events not always like we do?

    Daniel`s 70 weeks prophecy also includes non western ways of measuring time that can be extrapolated over the whole 7000 years. So also can a “time” as in “7 times more” in Lev 26

    It seems to me that Gods holistic plan for us over the ages is part of preaching the whole gospel. I would love the opportunity to do the thesis justice and write it up properly. To achieve the best outcome and clarity via learned, Bible believing peer review.

    Blessings in messiah
    Glen.
