Journey Through Scripture is a parish-based Bible study program facilitated by the
St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology
. Distinctively Catholic, Journey Through Scripture takes a holistic approach, looking at the entire Bible and how all of its parts work together. It is grounded in history, yet vibrantly connected to the life of the Church today.
The goal of Journey Through Scripture is to help people read the Bible from the heart of the Church. More than just a Bible study, it’s biblical catechesis. Highlighting the pattern of promise and fulfillment that the Catechism and the Lectionary teach us to expect, we read the Old Testament in light of the New and the New Testament in light of the Old — all the while respecting the literary and historical integrity of both Testaments. Our guiding principles are points
101-133 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church
Currently, there are six different studies in the program:
- The Bible and Prayer - the newest in the series
- The Bible and the Mass (available in Spanish)
- The Bible and the Virgin Mary (available in Spanish)
- The Bible and the Sacraments (available in Spanish)
- The Bible and the Church Fathers
- Genesis to Jesus (available in Spanish)
This dynamic parish-based Bible study program is designed to help ordinary Catholics to grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures while deepening their understanding of the riches of our faith.
