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
