Bible Study

Jeff Cavins: The Bible Timeline

The Bible Timeline is a Catholic Bible study that can help anyone experience the life-changing power of God’s Word. The study takes you on a journey through the entire Bible and brings you deep into each period of salvation history, so that you can discover the amazing story woven throughout all of Scripture. The Bible Timeline has helped hundreds of thousands of people to better understand the Bible and a have a deeper relationship with Christ, and it will help you too. This will be offered at SEAS beginning Sept. 14 at 7:00-9:00 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Thursday evenings of each month from Sept., 2017 to May, 2018. We will take three months off in the summer and then finish the last few sessions from Sept. to Dec., 2018. Click here to learn more about this Bible study and/or to register. To ensure that we order enough materials, register by September 11.

At home study:  The Bible Page

Many of you may be interested in improving your understanding of the Bible if you could read Scripture at home and have some guidance as to how to start, how to interpret, and how to help your spiritual life in many ways.  The Bible Page is an attempt to promote home Bible reading by Catholics, encouraging you to read one or two chapters a week in the Bible on a more consistent basis and then get some guidance from the Bible Page on what was important in those chapters and how you can get your faith life improved by this reading.  The Bible Page also gives you an opportunity to ask questions by email when there is a need.  There are no meetings to attend.               

Each week, usually on Saturdays, a one-page document is sent out by email to you explaining what one or two chapters in the Bible mean and the significance to us in our everyday lives.  This program has been sent to over 200 persons including some in England and Africa and I have gotten excellent feedback on its usefulness.  It has been offered through St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Parish for four years and a more recent list open to other parishes has been going for two years.  We have started a third group and anyone from any parish is welcome to join.  All of the Bible Pages are checked by a priest to be sure they are in accord with Catholic Church teaching.  Cross references are given for further study to other books of the Bible and to the Catechism of the Catholic Church.               

If you are interested in beginning to receive the Bible Page each week all that is needed is to send an email with your name, email address, and name and location of your parish to me at either or  Mention the Bible Page in the email subject line.  This information is held in confidence.  There is no cost and no obligation.  You can discontinue this service at any time.  If you have questions on the subjects discussed you can email me and I will try to answer them as best I can.  I have many years’ experience in Scripture study and have led groups for over ten years.  I took a four-year course in Catholic Bible study.  I hope you will consider signing up.
