Master's Degree in

New Testament

With a commitment to biblical literacy and practical application, the Master’s in New Testament is a specialized degree focusing on the text of the early church. This program is excellent preparation for further academic work at the graduate or doctoral level. It also can prepare you for ministry careers in teaching at some Christian secondary schools or Christian colleges. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in academia and/or writing or hoping to serve in a ministry role, the MA/NT will provide you the grounding in Scripture you need.
“Trinity’s emphasis on language, specifically Greek, has pushed me to study harder through the MA/NT. My involvement through exegesis work has deepened my knowledge of the original language of the New Testament. While also preparing me for my work teaching at a Bible college. The time spent in the MA/NT at TEDS translates directly from classroom to classroom and student to student.”
David-Wesley Field ’23


Trinity has been entrusted with the Gospel since 1897, and every day we are called to live with purpose. Our purpose as a divinity school is to know the Gospel, live the Gospel and make the Gospel known. In today’s ever-changing culture, Trinity immerses students in a community of biblical orthodoxy and practical living. The Trinity faculty is among the most widely published in evangelical academia and has deeply influenced the leaders shaping the present and future of evangelical Christianity across the globe.

Academic Excellence

Hear from Dr. Jipp and faculty how the MA in New Testament program prepares you for your academic and ministry goals.

Study with the Authors

Experience a classroom setting like none other. At Trinity, you will study under leading theologians, experts, and renowned authors in their specific field. Our professors will not only teach you but invest in your life.
“The world of the New Testament is diverse, exciting, challenging, and often different that what we have often imagined. The MA in NT program at TEDS offers a wonderful opportunity to get to know the NT world at a much deeper level, through studying Greek, the historical and cultural backgrounds, and the texts of the NT. As the NT world comes into better focus, contemporary parallels and applications also come into better focus. God’s good news spoken over two thousand years ago is still speaking to us today!”
