Keen to understand the Bible better? Do you desire to journey through Sacred Scripture, pausing to taking in the key points to help the understanding of the Revelation?

Beginning with a general introduction this course aims at furnishing the student with the appropriate tools for a meaningful study of Biblical texts, with particular reference to its spiritual, liturgical and pastoral context. The study of the historical books and the discovery of the unique and special events it tells will provide an understanding of the foundation of the people of Israel. The journey continues with look at all that is entailed by the exclamation « Thus speaks the Lord » whilst a study of the Gospel of John looks at the fullness of the Revelation, and is approached through the themes of “Temple”, “Light”, and “Life”. An introduction to the Life, Epistles and Theology of Saint Paul concludes this formal course of study by looking at how one man was transformed by his encounter with the Lord.
