EDUCATION: Formed in His Communion

Bible Studies

Come join fellow St. John's parishioners in deeper companionship with Christ through lectio divina, "where the Word of God is so read and meditated that it becomes prayer" (Catechism, 1177).


For 2016, St. John the Evangelist Bible Study will read Isaiah.  This prophet, considered one of the greatest of the prophets, appeared at a critical moment in Israel's history.  The Northern Kingdom had been conquered by Assyria in 722/721 B.C.  God sends Isaiah to carry out his judgment against his unfaithful people.  Learn more about Isaiah and his prophecies, many of which are found in the liturgy for Advent and Lent.  Bible study began on September 7, 2016 and is held in the Music Room in St. John the Evangelist School from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.  For additonal information, please see page 4 of the bulletin for September 4, 2016.  

 


History of Bible Study at St. John the Evangelist:  

St. John the Evangelist launched the Bible Study series offered by Ascension Press in 2009.  The first Study, started on Sept. 23, was “The Bible Timeline: The Story of Salvation.”  The 24 lessons in “The Bible Timeline” guide the student of Scripture through the reading of the biblical narrative. 

In 2010, “Matthew: The King and his Kingdom,” another 24-part study, was the follow-up to the Scripture narrative in “The Bible Timeline.”  The gospel of Matthew explores the life and mission of Jesus.

Following Matthew was “Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom.” This study shows how the Church continued the work of Christ after the coming of the Holy Spirit. 

These three Studies were designed to form a solid foundation for an ongoing parish Bible Study program.

In 2012, the Bible Study group covered “James: Pearls for Wise Living” described as a “book of wisdom.”  James is a compilation of teachings intended to help the fledgling church in the face of persecution.

Oración de un evangelista

Señor Jesús, que quiere que nos convirtamos en una fuerza viva para toda la humanidad, las luces brillando en el mundo. Quiere que seamos luces radiantes como estamos a tu lado, la gran luz, bañado en tu gloria, oh Luz del Cielo. Vamos a disfrutar más y más la luz pura y deslumbrante de la Santísima Trinidad, como ahora que hemos recibido, aunque no en su plenitud, un rayo de su esplendor, que procede del único y verdadero Dios, en Cristo Jesús, nuestro Señor, a quien sea la gloria y el poder por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

-St. Gregorio Naciancino (330-390)
