Divine Institute of Bible and Spirituality

"Do you understand what you are reading?"…And he said..."How can I, unless someone guides me?"(Acts 8:30-31)

The Divine Bible College was formed in 2002 for those who wished to study and understand the
Word of God. It has been a tremendous success with students from all over the world flocking in,
to learn from renowned Bible scholars. In 2007, it was renamed the 'Divine 
Institute of Bible and Spirituality'.

The Divine
Institute of Bible and Spirituality offers three 
courses in Bible & Spirituality - the short term
course in Malayalam and English and the one-year course in English.

It is a spiritual journey through all the books
of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, in
an atmosphere
of prayer and personal reflection. 
Renowned Bible scholars unravel the mysteries
contained in the Bible and their relevance today.

The course is offered to priests, religious and laity, in view of their spiritual growth and ministry. 
The Divine Institute of Bible and Spirituality is affiliated to Calicut University and the one-year
course is a certified course. Candidates between the ages of 20-60 are welcome.
