The History

After accepting Jesus as his savior and king, a desire surfaced within Herb Bateman to learn more about God. What better source is there than the Bible? A rather significant group of verses that prompted this desire was Philippians 1:9–11 — “And I pray this, that your love may abound even more and more in knowledge and every kind of insight (with this result) so that you can decide what is best, and thus be sincere and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God” (NET). What better place to go and learn about the Bible than a Bible college. Bateman's eventual enrollment in Philadelphia College of the Bible’s degree program (renamed Cairn University) launched a life long study of God’s word. But do believers have to go to a Bible college, Christian college, or seminary to learn about God and the Bible?

After serving in the academy for over twenty years, circumstances afforded Bateman the opportunity to focus more attention to writing and serving local church leaders in a new venue, the internet. The Cyber-Center for Biblical Studies began in 2013 with a modest web page that featured free monthly videos, its first publication – Translating Jude Clause by Clause, and one year later (2014) its first Let's Know the Bible Conference. In 2017, the Cyber-Center for Biblical Studies began offering theological seminars in Southeast Asia. After six years, the Let's Know the Bible Conferences were discontinued due to Covid (2014–2019) and the Cyber-Center for Biblical Studies desolved. Nevertheless, Bateman still  maintains this website, preaches occationally, conducts conferences, and is involve in editing and writing for a new series: Guides to Reading Biblical Greek published with Lexham.


Theologically, it is believed that the Bible is God’s authoritative word for all followers of Jesus, the one through whom God has reestablished his Kingdom rule by means of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection, which is proclaimed clearly in the Bible.
