Why Study the Bible?

Christian formation should be a lifelong process.  In order to grow in love and understanding of our faith, we need to be lifelong learners, deepening our understanding of the scriptures, the sacraments and Christian living.

There are seventy-three books in the Bible, and many stories…it’s “the greatest story ever told”. It has been given to us through the Church and written in Sacred Scripture—not only so we can read the story, but so we can meet God there and be changed by the encounter. This “Story,” tells us who we are, why we are here, and what we were made for. It tells us that God is, that He loves us, and how He has acted through the ages so we can get from here to Him.

“Reading the Bible should bring us closer to Christ, but understanding it is not always easy. Many people tell me they have tried time and again to prayerfully read Scripture, but they get frustrated because they “just don’t get it.” (Jeff Cavins, Great Adventure Bible Study)

The Adult Bible Study Ministry provides an easy and enjoyable way for adults to better understand scripture as individuals and as community. We read assignments and go over study questions on our own; then gather together weekly to review the material, share our thoughts and gain further depth and interpretation from DVD teachings by Catholic theologians. As we grow in our knowledge and appreciation for the written Word, our faith grows. Readings come alive; we uncover how much of the Mass is rooted in scripture and how dynamic it is; and we grow in knowledge and confidence to share the good news.
