Our Catholicism 101 series, which is also the RCIA instructional sessions, will wrap up with The Sermon on the Mount this Wednesday, June 22. After a two week break, we will resume July 13 with Dr. Scott Hahn’s Genesis to Jesus! Journey with us for seven weeks as we do an amazing over-view of the entire Old Testament; making sense of the story of salvation. 6:30-8:00 in the Community Room.
Directly from the St. Paul Center’s explanation of Genesis to Jesus:
What is the Bible, where does it come from and what is its purpose? How are Catholics supposed to read the Bible and what story does it have to tell? These are the questions we take up in this “big picture” survey course.
Following an introduction to Catholic teaching about divine revelation and Bible, we jump right in and begin reading. We start with the creation story and Noah’s ark, and trace the history of salvation as it unfolds in the series of covenants that God makes with His chosen people – from Abraham and the twelve tribes of Israel to Moses and finally to King David. We see how this history reaches its climax and fulfillment in Jesus and the Church. The aim is to give you a solid outline and overview of the story that the Bible tells, from Genesis to Jesus.
