Having a better understanding of Scripture (the Old and New Testaments) can enable people to grow in both their faith, and their personal relationship with God. In addition to the study of relevant topics during Advent and Lent, specially selected topics of study are chosen throughout the year to help facilitate this growth. Study groups are lead by Fr. Michael.
The Books of the Bible
The topic of our current Bible Study is ‘The Books of the Bible’. As the title suggests, in this study we have grouped certain books of the Bible into specific categories based on their associations and similarities. For example, one category is the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament), a natural category of its own because that was the name given to it by those who chose the books that were to form the Canon of the Hebrew Bible.
The other categories are the Historical Books, the Books of Wisdom, the Major Prophets, the Minor Prophets, the Gospels, Acts of the Apostles, the Pauline Letters, the Pastoral Letters, and the Apocalyptic Books.
The current study is held every second Thursday at 7pm in the John Steele Room of the church. Please contact Fr. Michael Danaher on 0419 114 870 or at ua.moc.oohaynull@rehanadfm if you would like to take part in the program.
