I.  A Quick Journey Through the Bible

  • Presented by Jeff Cavins, the Quick Journey study briefly covers salvation history in a   series of eight, half-hour talks that are complemented by group discussion questions, useful maps and charts, and brief assignments for home study. This study makes the complexity of the Bible simple through an easy-to-follow narrative approach and an ingenious color-coded Bible timeline. This is a great way to “get your feet wet” and learn how to begin authentic Catholic Bible study.

II.  The Bible Timeline: Story of Salvation

  • The Bible Timeline: Story of Salvation is a fascinating study that takes you on a journey through the entire Bible. Go deep into each period of salvation history and discover the amazing story woven throughout all of Scripture.As you explore salvation history—from its beginning in Genesis through the coming of Christ and the establishment of the Catholic Church—you will see how God’s loving plan for humanity has unfolded, resulting in a greater love for God and a deeper appreciation for your faith.

III.  Matthew: The King and His Kingdom

  • Building directly on the foundation laid in The Bible Timeline, the next step in The Great Adventure Bible Study Series, Matthew: The King and His Kingdom, shows how Jesus builds on the foundation laid in the Old Testament to inaugurate the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. Experience how Jesus relived the life and struggles of Israel to become the faithful and victorious King, and see how the promises of the Old Testament are fulfilled in Christ and his Apostles.

IV.  Acts

 

 

  • The book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth.The Acts of the Apostles provides an historic framework for understanding the rest of the New Testament. Paul’s letters in particular come alive in a new way when they are read within the context of the Acts narrative.

V.  Revelation

 

 

  •  In this intriguing look at one of the most talked-about books in Scripture, Jeff Cavins explores Revelation to demonstrate how the Kingdom established by Christ in His Church is intimately connected with the Kingdom of Heaven, especially through the celebration of the Mass. You will also learn what all the mysterious figures and images of Revelation represent, as well as what will happen during the Second Coming of Christ, what has already happened, and what is happening now in salvation history.
