T3 Bible Programme

The T3 Bible Programme

The T3 Bible Programme consists of 8 Courses with each course made up of Modules. The course work can either be covered with live presentations from pastors/teachers, or filmed recordings of teachings are available. The pace at which the course work is covered is based on the organiser’s preference. The course work is taught generally in the filmed teachings and does not necessarily unpack the course notes in a systematic manner. It is recommended students read the notes on their own, before or after sessions, and spend time reflecting and interacting with the notes.

Please Note:

*Each course is a stand-alone course and it is not necessary to have attended prior courses or to complete the entire T3 Programme in order.

*A reminder that the T3 Bible Programme is NOT an accredited or registered programme. It is for informal study only. Should you wish to work towards a formal certificate/ diploma/ degree you will need to sign up to a registered and accredited programme with a recognised institution.

How will you receive the course?

Due to the large size of the filmed course files, these episodes will be placed onto a portable hard drive that will be sent to you as a Four12 partner on request. This hard drive will contain all the filmed material, along with the course notes. The T3 Bible College Resources will be available to Four12 Partnering Churches from May 2017.


We trust that as you study and pursue God, seeking His face, that you will encounter Him even more and dig foundations that will take you deeper, make you stronger and will impact on the church and the Kingdom of God, for many years to come.

Programme Outline


Course 1: Doctrine of Revelation: God Speaks

This course  looks at how God has chosen to reveal Himself, in a general sense, to all mankind through nature, history and human personality and why He has done this. It also focuses on the specific way in which God speaks to His people, with particular reference to His words, His works and ultimately how God speaks through His Son. From this, God’s written Word is looked at – the Bible – its inspiration, uniqueness and translations.  

Course 2: In the Beginning

The book of Genesis is the book of beginnings and sets the foundation for all that is to follow. First to the Nature and Character of God, as Three Persons with One Substance: the Creator and Sustainer of all things. This course looks at His creation, both the invisible realm (angels and demons) and the visible realm. Following from here is the creation account, the foundational pillars of Genesis and also looking at order within creation.

Course 3: The Fall

In this course, the focus is on how God has made man in His image, with the purpose of glorifying God. How man fell into sin and the effects of sin on the human race. Further exploration into the ongoing effect of ‘the fall’ on the way man thinks and acts, as well as at how man’s reasoning and how man’s systems are in conflict with God’s ways. This course looks at different philosophical approaches to finding truth and also take a broad look at church history up until the reformation to show how any institution, even the church, becomes corrupted when man’s systems replace God’s principles.

Course 4: Understanding the Old Testament

In this course, the focus is in on the importance of the Old Testament for the Christian. You can only truly know the New Testament through having an understanding of the Old. The course teaches you how to read the various genres of the Old Testament from law, to poetry, and the narratives. Various major themes of the Old Testament will be unpacked, such as covenant, temple and the faithfulness of God. The person of Christ is a vital theme which will also be discussed by looking at how Christ fulfilled the various feasts and the types we find under the Old Covenant.

Course 5: Coming to Know God: The Doctrine of Salvation

In this course, the focus is on the theme of Salvation. The Doctrine of Salvation is explained and applied by looking at Scripture primarily. The focus is also on the atonement and various pictures God gives us to understand the work of the Cross, especially as it relates to His love, and how His love relates to suffering and sickness. Time will be spent working through God’s ‘process’ or ‘order of Salvation’ as theologians call it, in saving people. This includes coming to know God through initial conviction of sin and calling, to receiving glorified bodies when Christ returns.

Course 6: Growing in God

This course deals with many of the foundational truths with the aim that of growing in God. The focus is on what it means to be grounded in God, and will take a closer look at growing in the Spirit, growing in spiritual disciplines and being a Christian in the World.

Course 7: Church and the Kingdom

Scripture has much to say about the Kingdom of God: God’s rule over all things but especially His people. The church is the vehicle that he has chosen to extend His Kingdom and to reveal His manifold wisdom (Ephesians 3:10). It is important to understand the similarities and differences between Kingdom and Church and to see that God has always used His covenant community to achieve His purposes.

Course 8: Eschatology: The Doctrine of Last Things

No synopsis is available at present for this course.
