Dear Parishioners of St. Peter’s,
The Scriptures of the Word of God given to us through the words of the prophets (Old Testament) and apostles (New Testament). They are the words God speaks to us and it is critically important that we know and understand the scripture to deepen our lives and our communion with God.
Many people have mentioned they would like to know the Scriptures better. To accomplish this, pick one of the two plans below:
- Through the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John). Read through them four times in one year.
- Read the Bible in a Year. After one year you will have read the entire Bible.
This study will be self-directed. It is offered here as a guide. If you accomplish this however, your knowledge of scripture will grow. In fact, you will discover many new things and your faith will increase.
As a study aid you can read (and print) How to Read the Bible.
