Susan Castille Bible Study

“The World and Wisdom of St. Paul”

In this 7 week study, we invite you to join us for an adventure! We will spend time with one of the most interesting and important characters in the whole Bible, St. Paul. He was a Pharisee totally opposed to Jesus who was completely transformed by his encounter with the Lord outside Damascus. He became a self-described apostle of Christ who exerted a tremendous influence on the direction of the Christian Church. His life reads like a novel, complete with supernatural visions, great friends, terrible enemies, painful persecutions, and glorious achievements. We will visit fascinating places like Jerusalem, Antioch, Tarsus, Cappadocia, Galatia, and others, and we will learn something of their history and geography. We will also see how much of the New Testament came to be written by St. Paul. There is a complete and informative commentary available with this course which has maps, pictures, timelines and many other interesting things. It also has questions for group studies, so gather a group and get to work! You will truly enjoy this faith journey! (To request a copy of the commentary, simply contact us through this website and request it.)
