THE GREAT ADVENTURE – A JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE
Is a program that introduces Catholics to Scripture and makes the Bible approachable by explaining the overarching narrative story of salvation and shows how the various books fit together to get that story across. Once a person understands the “narrative thread” of the entire story, they are far better prepared to understand not just the individual parts, but also more complicated matters related to the Christian faith.
St. Patrick Shrine is offers an 8 week introduction to the Bible Timeline series a couple of times a year. This is a DVD series in which a very dynamic Jeff Cavins takes you through the bible in a way that is exciting and easy to understand. We try to schedule these meetings at a convenient time, usually between the Masses in the church on Sundays.
St. Patrick Shrine is also offering the more in depth 24 week study in three phases over the course of the next year. In this DVD series Jeff Cavins goes into more stories and theology in the time line. It is a bigger commitment, but well worth the effort. Phase 1 is currently meeting on Monday nights 7-9pm.
Phase 1: Early World, Patriarchs, Egypt& Exodus
Phase 2: Desert Wanderings, Conquest & Judges, Royal Kingdom, Divided Kingdom, Exile
Phase 3: Return, Maccabean Revolt, Messianic Fulfillment, The Church
