Living Discipleship: Exploring the Bible

Living Discipleship: Exploring the Bible

 

St. John’s Cathedral -- Christian Education  2017-2018

 

There is an epic story beginning in creation and continuing for thousands of years even into the future. It’s a story of a family. It’s a story of tribes. It’s a story ultimately of all humanity. It’s your story, and it’s written in the pages of the Bible. You may know the Bible well, or maybe you don’t. You may have tried to read it but think it’s boring, or confusing, or off-putting, because you don’t understand the back story, or what a bunch of ancient writings really have to do with your daily life. Or maybe you’ve experienced the Bible as a weapon people have tried to use against you.

 

We have a challenge for you this year at St. John’s. We believe whether you love the Bible, fear it, or are indifferent to it, you will come to know it in a new way if you join us on a journey through this story. Becoming more biblically literate, or reading the Bible in a new way will change the way you understand yourself as a follower of Jesus and the way you look at the whole world.

 

From October through May this year, most every Sunday we are going to travel together through the pages of the Bible. We are using a great tour book to guide our called The Path; a series of readings taking us through the whole story of the bible from Genesis through Revelation. Along the way there will be information to shape our understanding and questions to challenge our thinking. (See the other side of this flyer for a complete schedule for the year).

 

As a companion to The Path, and a further tour guide to the Bible, we highly recommend a brand new book by Rob Bell, What is the Bible: How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything (Harper Collins, 2017). Rob Bell is a highly accessible and often funny writer. He has a tremendous gift of making the pages of the Scriptures come alive with new meaning.  All of these books are available at Cathedral Bookstore or via Amazon.

What’s more is that this is a family journey. There is a companion children’s version, The Path: A Family Storybook and a curriculum for children that our Children’s events will focus on this year. So as you learn about the Bible, our children will be taking the same journey. This will be an awesome adventure.
