The essentials for understanding Scripture and the Catholic faith
Each week we’ll read the Bible and allow God’s Word to guide us in the life of a Catholic missionary disciple, studying 14 books of the Old Testament and 16 books of the New Testament.
As an expert instructor guides you through the weekly Scripture readings, you will:
- Discover the roots of our Sacraments in the Old Testament
- Explore Creation narratives as a Catholic
- Learn the meanings of God’s Covenant with Israel and the New Covenant
- Find scriptural support for key Catholic teachings
- Encounter the full humanity and divinity of Jesus present in His earthly ministry
- Meet Jesus’ early followers and see how they evangelized lukewarm religious people and a secular culture
- Learn the story of Christianity’s spread in the 1st century and how we share that mission today
