Course summary: This ministry will provide participants an overview and general knowledge of the Old Testament and New Testament. Through an interactive method, we will experience the life of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Participants will learn why the Gospel writers wrote what they did and the meaning of the Chapters and Verses. We will learn that many of the Old Testament prophecies were truly fulfilled in the New Testament as we will cross reference New Testament Readings to Old Testament Scripture. In other words, the New Testament is revealed in the Old Testament and the Old Testament is fulfilled in the New Testament. Hence, we will indirectly study the Old Testament through cross referencing the New to the Old. We will focus on the Gospels to understand Jesus’ ministry and the moral lessons he taught. We will also study The Book of Acts which will highlight the critical importance of the Holy Spirit. Then we will study the Epistles of the Apostles and Saints to learn how Christianity was a natural expansion of the Covenant God made to our Jewish brethren as the Kingdom of Heaven was opened to all through Christ, the New Covenant. We will learn how oral tradition became the written word and what our Church Fathers promulgated as Doctrine which stands even in today’s time.
Level of Understanding: the course is meant to provide basic learning and provide the participant with increased understanding of the Bible. More importantly, our hope is that that all participants will experience the Grace , Peace and Charisms’ that flow from reading the Word. It is for those who may never had theological training but have a burning desire to understand God’s love letter to each of us as we prepare to serve Him on earth as it is in Heaven.
Preparation for Study: All we ask is that prior to the study sessions, the participants would have read the sections of the Scriptures. It is essentially a lecture series in nature so no one need to be anxious concerning limited Biblical Knowledge. Participants should be comfortable asking questions to deepen their understanding.
Goal or expected outcomes: it is our hope and prayers that the participants will receive a deepening of their faith and trust in Our Lord Jesus. Also, with this enhanced knowledge, more can proclaim the Gospel to many others in their families, amongst friends, in their spheres of influence and communities. Join us to help build the Church Jesus Christ founded.
Many of us have a special connection to our parish, nurtured by years of church, schooling, friendships and support. You can help your St. Rita to flourish with a gift in your Will or Trust. A bequest to St. Rita can create lasting change and help provide a secure future for our church, parishioners, and priests.
