The Joshua Institute
Of Biblical Training For Purpose

For there is nothing that we should enjoy - I use the term advisedly - so much as looking at Him [Jesus].  There is no value in all other teaching if we are not right about Him.  Essentially the vital point of all teaching, of theology, and of the whole Bible is to bring us to a knowledge of Him and into relationship with Him.  D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

The Joshua Institute of Biblical Training is designed for the busy person who hungers for the Word of God. Courses are self-study, although we are available to answer questions. For Online courses, the best way to ask questions is to put them in the comment box at the bottom of the lesson as this will help other students learn too - for the other courses send an email.  The Courses are also self-paced. No need to worry about getting behind. Work on them as you are able without the pressure of time limits. Courses have a suggested donation.  Required textbooks may be purchased here.  You may also be interested in free email courses on Free Bible Study Lessons.

A prerequisite to every Joshua Institute course is the completion of the Feed Yourself Bible Study Course

Courses that have a 'clickable' link are currently available.  Other courses [and many that are not yet listed] are being developed.  However, I work full time in a grocery store to support my family and pay the expenses of this site so the progress on new courses may be slow.  Keep checking back!


Bible Chronology - helps to see how Bible events fit together.

Biblical Law Vocabulary - a reference guide for people, movements or obscure words used in the textbook.

According to the Bible, you must judge all teaching by the inspired Word of God. Telling God you were following recognized religious leaders will not be an acceptable excuse in the Day of Judgment...We must strengthen our knowledge of the Word of God so we cannot be led astray by doctrines that look like they are from God, but lack a biblical foundation. Finally, may God deliver us from blind dedication to what seemingly good men and women teach. The Word of God is our measuring rod, not the popularity of men. Rev. Judson Cornwall

Click on the course name for a full description.  Some courses are done online, some are downloadable PDFs and some require a textbook.  I have colour-coded the links so you can easily tell which courses require textbooks.  And remember that the suggested donation is only a suggestion.  If, before God, you can honestly say that you cannot afford it, please take the course anyway.  I want you to be built up in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ Who loves you and gave Himself for you.

Note: Some of the lessons in some of the courses are long.  Remember, there are no time limits.  It is better to do two or three pages a day than to do a whole bunch, feel overwhelmed and quit.  Just take it at whatever pace you are comfortable with.  A lesson does not have to be done in one 'sitting'.
