In addition, the Biblical Literature major features several well-known Bible professors, including Wilbur Williams, Ken Schenck, and Steve Lennox. Students will look forward to experiencing the Greek and Hebrew languages with Elaine Bernius and have the opportunity to gain hands-on archeological experience during the Summer in Israel program with Brian Bernius.
