Biblical Studies

Past Courses

St. Uriel's has a very exciting biblical studies program.  We have been using the Great Adventure Bible Study Series from Ascension Press.  This program has been so successful that not only are the participants members of St. Uriel's, many participants are from other local parishes and churches.

The Great Adventure Bible study programs are designed to help the student make sense of the Bible and experience the life-changing power of God’s Word.  Starting with Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible or The Bible Timeline will give you the big picture of the Bible so you can make sense of all of Scripture.

1st Corinthians,  The Church and the Christian Community 
What can I expect to learn?

If you page through Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, you will see that he addresses many of the same topics that appear in the news headlines today: scandals, promiscuity, debates and controversies, and issues related to prosperity versus poverty. Clearly the struggles faced by the early Christians are in many ways similar to our own. Paul’s messages to the Corinthians regarding division, immorality, persecution, and other trials offer much--needed wisdom for our own times.

 

The First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community study explores the key elements of the gospel message that Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. In this 11-part program, presenter Tim Gray examines Paul’s advice for living an authentic Christian life in a pagan culture, as well as his teachings about the nature of grace, the Church as the body of Christ, and the most powerful gift of all–the Eucharist.
