The Book of Revelation
Virtual Evening Bible Study

 

Using the Zoom platform, join longtime St. Francis bible study facilitator, Rich Zemonek, as you revisit a volatile period of history through apocalyptic, symbolic writing. Enter into the struggle between good and evil, hear the call to conversion and experience God’s ultimate triumph. Revelation’s apocalyptic imagery, symbolic colors and numbers are explored. The evils of the Roman Empire during a specific period of time persecution are behind much of the apocalyptic imagery. It contains letters to seven churches of Asia Minor (modern Turkey), which urge faithfulness to Christ. Powerful visions of God and the victorious lamb in heaven are unveiled as God and the lamb achieve the ultimate and absolute victory over evil, culminating in a new heaven and a new earth with a new Jerusalem as home to God’s holy people.

This study has 8 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 7 lessons. The Study Set includes the Study Guide by Little Rock Scripture Study Staff and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, The Book of Revelation, by Catherine A. Cory (Liturgical Press).

New for the Fall!

The Book of Exodus
Virtual Bible Study

The exodus is the central event of the Old Testament, giving meaning to everything else we find in its pages. Part One of this study takes us through the first fifteen chapters of Exodus-from slavery to the call of Moses, from plagues to crossing the sea, from captivity to freedom in the Sinai. Part Two of this study covers the final 25 chapters of Exodus. Beginning with the insecurity of the desert wanderings, to encountering God on Sinai and then constructing the tent of dwelling, God’s people learn what it means to be part of a covenant with the one who liberates and also gives the Law to guide and direct them. Discover that God hears those who are beaten down and liberates those who are in need of his justice.

Sessions will take place on the free Zoom platform.

Dates: Wednesdays – 9/16, 9/23, 9/30, 10/7, 10/14, 10/21, 10/28, 11/4, 11/11, 11/18 (10 sessions)
Time: 10:00-11:30am via Zoom
