St. Jude Parish will begin

Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible

on Thursday, August 6th, 6:45 – 8:15PM.

Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible helps you uncover the story woven through Scripture with its clever narrative approach and ingenious color-coded Bible Timeline. It is a great way to get the “big picture” of the Bible and see how our Catholic Faith is rooted in Scripture. You’ll see how the Bible reveals God’s loving plan for your life, and you will learn helpful ways to put your faith into practice.

The study includes a series of eight informative and engaging half-hour videos presented by Jeff Cavins. Each video will be followed by a lively group discussion. The cost is $20.00 per person which includes the color-coded Bible Timeline Chart and a Bible study workbook.

Option #1

 JESUS, the Way, the Truth, the Life     Starting Monday, August 3rd from 6:45-8:30PM for 10 weeks. Presented by Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins, and Dr. Edward Sri, this study was filmed in the Holy Land so Catholics can experience the extraordinary world in which Jesus lived and taught—the historical context, the politics, the clashing cultures, the history, and the ancient land—and see where the most significant events of his life took place, from his infancy to his ascension.

This study shows, in a simple way, how Jesus, the Incarnate God, is both fully divine and fully human—his intimacy with the Father, his revelation of the Father’s love, and his extraordinary influence on his disciples, his followers, and even his enemies. Learn who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, what he did for our salvation, and what all of this means for us as Catholics today.

In This Study, Catholics Will Learn…

  • Who Jesus is and how he answers the longings of the human heart.
  • Why Jesus was baptized.
  • The significance of the Transfiguration.
  • The essentials of Christology explained in a way the average Catholic can understand.
  • The mystery and meaning of the Resurrection, Christ’s triumph over death.
  • The nature of Jesus’ mission and the redemption of humanity.
  • Our role today as Catholics in the Great Commission.

Option #2

UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF THE BIBLE Starting Thursday, August 6th from 6:45-8:15PM for 8 weeks.

Many people want to read the Bible because they know it is God’s Word but give up because it is so complicated. The Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible study program helps you to get the “big picture” of the Bible by showing how fourteen narrative books of the Bible tell the complete story from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church.

In this study, presenter Jeff Cavins will show you how to read the Bible so that you can actually understand it. Aided by a unique color-coded Bible TimelineTM Chart that arranges the key people, places, and events of Scripture in chronological order, Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible will help you discover the story of salvation history and understand how you fit into God’s plan. This study program includes  8 video presentations that explore the twelve time periods of The Bible Timeline Chart.

Option #3

ROMANS: THE GOSPEL OF SALVATION Starting Tuesday, August 11th, 6:45-8:30PM for 8 weeks.

Discover What It Means to “Be Saved”

Paul’s letter to the Romans has been at the center of reflection, conversion, and controversy from the very beginning. In Romans: The Gospel of Salvation, theology professor Dr. Andrew Swafford and Jeff Cavins provide an authentically Catholic, comprehensive, and simple way to understand the overarching theme of Romans—salvation

Dr. Swafford and Cavins provide historical context, highlight the connections to Jesus and Christianity Paul makes with the Old Testament, and explore the ways in which Jesus is the fulfillment of Israel’s prophecies, which leads to the universal, “Catholic” family of God.

In this 8-session program, Catholics learn…

  • The Catholic teaching on salvation
  • How to explain salvation to non-Christians
  • What is required for salvation—faith or works
  • What Paul really means by “works” not leading to salvation
  • How Christ’s death changed our relationship with God
  • The meaning of the difficult passages in Romans
  • How we can enter more deeply into Christ
