Introduction to the Bible with Fr. Larry Hayes, OFM Introduction to the Bible with Fr. Larry Hayes, OFM
How do we as Catholic Christians approach the Bible? Why is it such an important book for us? Who wrote it and how did it get its final form? Why were additional gospels and other available writings NOT included in the Bible? Who determined the final contents? What kinds of writing are found in the Bible? How do Catholics interpret the Bible? How does Catholic Biblical interpretation differ from Biblical fundamentalism and literalism?

How do we as Catholic Christians approach the Bible? Why is it such an important book for us? Who wrote it and how did it get its final form? Why were additional gospels and other available writings NOT included in the Bible? Who determined the final contents? What kinds of writing are found in the Bible? How do Catholics interpret the Bible? How does Catholic Biblical interpretation differ from Biblical fundamentalism and literalism?

These are just some of the questions that we will explore in a seven-week Bible study at St. Mary’s. This study will make the Bible more understandable and user-friendly for newcomers and experienced Bible students alike. It will also give you a chance to share with other parishioners.

We will use the Little Rock Scripture Study course that includes a book, reflection questions to share in our sessions, and a short wrap-up video for each session. There will be seven sessions, on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 – 9:00 PM in the Banta Room, beginning on August 28, 2018 and ending on October 16, 2018 (no class on September 18).

Registration is required and the class will be limited to 35 participants. Deadline for registering is August 13. Cost (to cover materials) will be $20.

Register here.
