To Be Faithful Servants Walking God's Talk
Scripture Study at St Patrick's
St. Patrick’s Parish uses the Little Rock Scripture Study which is in its 40th year, now world-wide, assisted by the Benedictines of Liturgical Press. We invite you to sign up for possibly your first Scripture course, in this our 10th year of offering programs that combine both study and prayer.
The course is entitled Panorama of the Bible: Old Testament, a 5 week survey course of the Scriptures that would have been used by Jesus, the disciples and the early Church. This is a most appropriate course for newcomers to Scripture study.
After the introductory session, the following four weeks will look at the following:
Lesson 1—Israel's Beginnings; Israel's Foundational Covenant
Lesson 2—From Conquest to Kingdom; Division, Exile, and Restoration
Lesson 3—Israel's Songs and Stories; Israel's Wisdom Tradition
Lesson 4—Challenging the Times; Hoping in the Future”
The once-a-week class lasts 2 hours and combines the best principles of adult education in the faith, small group discussions, a DVD lecture. The key is daily reading of the assigned chapters and answering questions using the workbook that complements the text and commentary. Cost is $35.
The course begins on Tuesday March 14 at 7:15 pm and a second section on Wednesday March 15 at 9:00 am. Our past participants told us that a better understanding of the Old Testament opens up insights and a deeper prayer.
