Our Winter Bible Study: Revelation
During our recent studies about the Eucharist, the Book of Revelation has been referenced so often that we decided we need to delve into this fascinating and misunderstood book of the Bible.
Perhaps no book of the Bible fascinates people more than Revelation. Yet relatively few people have studied it, especially from a Catholic perspective. Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come is an intriguing eleven-session study program that shows how the kingdom established by Christ in His Church is intimately connected with the Kingdom of Heaven. In this study, we will pull back the veil on the rich symbolism present in Revelation, discover what the mysterious figures and images of Revelation mean, see how Revelation is more than an apocalyptic vision of the “end times” and explore the Church’s teaching on the second coming of Christ and the Last Judgment. Understand how God, the Divine Bridegroom, and the Church, his spotless bride, enter into a heavenly, holy, and mystical marriage every time we celebrate Mass.
Our Revelation study will begin on Wednesday, January 10 and will run through Saturday, March 23 with study groups on these days:
- Wednesday mornings at 9:45am beginning January 10 (Lower Conference Room and zoom)
- Wednesday evenings at 7pm beginning January 10 (zoom only)
- Thursday evenings at 7pm beginning January 11 (Lower Conference Room only)
- Saturday mornings at 8:30am beginning January 13 (zoom only)

The Bible Timeline study will take us on a guided journey through salvation history, exploring how fourteen of the Bible’s narrative books tell the biblical story from beginning to end and giving us 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 time periods that make the narrative thread easier to follow. Using a unique Bible Timeline chart, we 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.
Through this study, we will learn how to read and understand the entire Bible and to discover the wonderful narrative of Scripture in a way that will transform our lives.
Note: If you have already taken this wonderful study, you may want to consider taking it, again … although the lesson is the same, the videos are new and greatly improved!
Classes begin August 7, but join us any time:
Mondays at 7:00pm
