What is the difference between biblical studies and theology?

Biblical studies are the study of the Bible.

The bottom line though is that biblical studies focus on the Bible as a book. 

Theological studies are topical. Meaning, an approach to theological knowledge (found primarily in the Bible) that involves arranging the data into well-ordered categories and frameworks.

What are the benefits of studying theology?

Theology helps us to understand, reflect, and often reevaluate how we are doing in our relationship with God.

Ultimately being able to improve on your relationship with God is the best outcome that one could hope for as a result of studying Theology
