Genesis to Jesus

Celebrate the Easter season with our new Virtual Sunday Night Series,

“Genesis to Jesus”

What is the Bible, where does it come from, and what is its purpose? How are Catholics supposed to read the Bible and what story does it tell? These are the questions answered in Genesis to Jesus, one of the Journey through Scripture studies from the St. Paul Center for Biblical Research. Join us to learn the basic Catholic principles for reading Scripture and to survey the broad outlines of the books of the Bible and their place in the story of salvation.

Journey through Scripture is the St. Paul Center’s flagship Bible study program designed to help ordinary Catholics grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures while deepening their understanding of the riches of our faith. Journey through Scripture takes a holistic approach, looking at the entire Bible and how all of its parts work together. Join us for a study and see why everyone is talking about Journey through Scripture. Here is a review from a former protestant:

I grew up in a Protestant church. Yet despite the Protestant views of Sola Scriptura and focus only on the word of God, I understand the Bible more as a Catholic than I ever did in Protestantism. Much of that knowledge and understanding comes from this Bible study and other resources by Dr. Scott Hahn. I cannot recommend it highly enough. An essential study for the faith.

St. Paul Center Mission: Reading the Bible from the Heart of the Church. The St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology is a non-profit research and educational institute that promotes life-transforming Scripture study in the Catholic tradition. The Center serves clergy and laity, students and scholars, with research and study tools — from books and publications to multimedia and on-line programming.

For us, this means more than helping people to know their way around the Bible. It means equipping them to enter into the heart of the living Word of God and to be renewed by this encounter.

We read the Bible from the heart of the Church, in light of the Church’s Liturgy and living Tradition. We hope to help people experience the heart-to-heart encounter that Jesus’ disciples experienced on that first Easter night, when they knew Him in the breaking of the bread: “Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us…while He opened to us the Scriptures?” (see Luke 24:13-37)
