Introduction to Scripture-Sacred Heart of Jesus (Carrollton) (9/17 and 24)

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM


Course #612. Introduction to Scripture. Participants in this course will obtain an overview of the Bible. It is a great place to start a more in depth Bible study program. This course will provide the participants with the basic concepts they need to begin the journey of navigating into the world of the scriptures. This course covers topics such as how the Bible came about, what were some of the cultural factors which influenced the events around the writing of the Old and New Testaments, and which Church Documents tell us about the Bible.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the process of Bible composition and authorship
  • Understand the meaning of Scripture’s oral and written tradition
  • Describe the meaning of covenantal love
  • Identify the Bible’s literary forms
  • Identify the books of the Old and New Testaments
  • Identify the “Synoptic Gospels”
  • Explain the uniqueness of John’s Gospel
  • Understand how to read and how not to read the Bible
  • Be familiar with the Church Documents related to the study of Scriptures


Although the content of this course is appropriate for those beginning their journey with the Holy Scriptures, this course is considered a 5 credit hour elective course in the area of Scriptures in the advanced level of the formation plan.
