The Holy Bible – From Genesis to Revelation

Sunday, December 9, 2018 | 10:15am

“The Bible really is the Word of God, containing everything necessary to our salvation, and therefore important for everyone to come to grips with ... with inquiring minds like Martin Luther, but also REJOICING. If we are not having cathartic fun in our study, then we are missing the point.”
—The Rev. Dr. Wesley Williams

Following on the popular Bible Study led by Father Williams this past spring, we embark on a two-year program, From Genesis to Revelation. Open to all.

“Our hope is that this course offering, entitled The Holy Bible – from Genesis to Revelation … With Open Minds, Quickly and Joyfully in Faith, will provide a sound overview of our Sacred Scripture central to the faith and culture, and even to the literary traditions, of more than two billion people around the world.

This Sunday series will first focus on the Old Testament for approximately 42 weekly sessions of 45 minutes each, starting on Sunday, September 9, 2018. In fall 2019, we will delve into the New Testament for approximately 42 weekly sessions.

Morning Sunday sessions: 10:15 am—11 am, Bethlehem Chapel
Afternoon Sunday sessions: 3–3:45 pm, Bethlehem Chapel
