Catholic Bible Study, Scripture Study for CatholicsCatholic Bible Study: On-Line Resources for the Study of Sacred Scripture 

 

Why Catholic Bible Study?  The BIble is God's living word, inspired by the Holy Spirit, revealing God's plan of salvation for mankind, written by human authors, relevant to all people of all cultures at all times.

 

But if we are to be enabled to hear what God is saying to us through the words of Sacred Scripture, we need to combine biblical prayer with authentically Catholic bible study.  The Catholic Church, contrary to widely held opinion, has never opposed the reading and study of the Bible.  In fact, the Catholic Church has been a patron of bible studies from the day it was born on the feast of Pentecost.  It has funded schools of biblical studies and archaeological work, such as the deciphering of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and issued documents providing guidance as we undertake the work of understanding, interpreting and applying Scripture.  Many of these official Church documents on Catholic scripture study are listed below.

 

Few of us can take the time to get an academic degree in biblical studies.  But we can read and study scripture daily, a little bit at a time, and vastly improve our ability to hear the voice of God in the words of the Bible.  The articles below are intended as an aid in this regard.  Some are short, practical reflections on the real life application of certain passages of Scripture.  Others are more substantial, even academic, articles on issues regarding biblical interpretation and exegesis.  We invite you to explore them and also to review our audio, video, and printed resources for Catholic Bible Study.
