Revelation: The Kingdom Yet To Come

In this intriguing look at one of the most talked-about books in Scripture, Jeff Cavins explores Revelation to demonstrate how the kingdom established by Christ in his Church is intimately connected with the kingdom of heaven, especially through the celebration of the Mass.

You will learn what all the mysterious figures and images of Revelation represent, as well as what will happen during the Second Coming of Christ, what has already happened, and what is happening now in salvation history. Register by Tuesday, September 7. Suggested donation is $25.

The Gospel According to John
Tuesdays, 9:30 - 11:30 AM,
beginning on September 14

An in-depth study on the Gospel According to John using the Catholic Scripture Study Commentary Workbook by Scott Hahn and Mark Shea. You will learn: why John’s Gospel has the most profound theology of the four Gospels, its unique focus on a Christian understanding of the family, and why love constitutes the New Law for John and for all of us.

Friday Morning Bible Study
Bible Timeline:The Story of Salvation

Fridays, 9:30 - 11:30 AM
beginning on Septemeber 17
Contact: Kathy McGill, kathymcgill1964@gmail.com 

Reading the Bible should bring us closer to Christ, but understanding it is often difficult. The good news is that you can understand the Bible, and The Bible Timeline, a twenty-four-part Bible study, makes it easy.

Presenter Jeff Cavins shows you how fourteen of the Bible’s narrative books tell the biblical story from beginning to end and gives you the keys to understanding the amazing story woven throughout Scripture. In this revolutionary approach to Bible study, The Bible Timeline divides the Bible into twelve color-coded time periods that make it easier to follow its narrative thread. Using a unique color-coded chart, you will learn the major people, places, and events of the Bible and discover how they all come together to reveal the remarkable story of our faith. Register by Friday, September 3. Suggested donation is $35.

Virtual Study
Hebrews: The New and Eternal Covenant

Wednesdays, 7:00 - 8:30 PM
beginning on Septemeber 22
Contact: Cathy Casto, 26mileturtle@gmail.com

Embark on a guided tour of the “Holy of Holies” of biblical theology. The book of Hebrews is like a little Catechism. It is steeped in rich truths that are foundational to our Catholic faith, but its highly refined theological concepts can be difficult for even the most seasoned Bible scholars to unpack.

Presented by Andrew Swafford and Jeff Cavins, Hebrews: The New and Eternal Covenant draws out the riches of this sublime book in a way that makes them easier to understand. It draws connections between the Old and New Testaments, the Liturgy, the Eucharist, the priesthood, and so much more. Register by Tuesday, September 7. Suggested donation is $35.

Register by emailing Cathy Casto at 26mileturtle@gmail.com  or by calling 913-488-2625.
