Why is it important to study the scriptures? Studying the scriptures can help us know the Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, give us power to resist temptation, and strengthen us in our challenges.
There is a ministry at Corpus Christi Catholic Church that answers that question and it’s called BIBLE STUDY. In the fall of 2012 we began a new journey in the ministry. The program that was in place was changed into more than just reading the scriptures; we began to learn how to live by what the scriptures were teaching us.
At the time of the change in the program, Bible Study had a small group that met on a Tuesday evening. With the new program a Thursday morning class was introduced and the Tuesday evening class was kept in place. Today, the Bible Study Ministry has an average of one hundred people attending. It’s not the number of people attending; it’s the spiritual satisfaction in their lives. Our Bible Study theme is communal prayer, knowledge of the Word and fellowship. Our three pillars are woven together with the sessions beginning with a communal prayer and the readings of the day, next we adjourn to our separate tables of eight to ten people for the discussion of the Word. We then finish the session with fellowship and a wrap up video for the lesson of the day. Participants develop a better understanding of the Bibles themes and writing styles, and gain clear insights about Catholic use and interpretation of the Bible.
The table discussion of the Holy Scripture is the most profound part of the weekly Bible Study sessions. A lit candle burns bright representing, JESUS CHRIST, the light of the world.
Study of the Gospel according to Mark… Begins Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 7:30 PM and Thursday Morning, January 11, 2018 at 9:30 AM
The shortest of the four gospels, Mark is the earliest account of Jesus' life. With no mention of Jesus' infancy, Mark begins with Jesus' baptism in the Jordan by John and climaxes with the announcement of his resurrection to the women at the tomb. Mark asks everyone to answer Jesus' question, “Who do you say that I am?” and challenges believers in every generation to accept the harsh reality of the cross. Mark, along with Matthew and Luke, is one of the synoptic gospels. It is the primary gospel of year 'B' in the Catholic Church's liturgical cycle.
