Study Group - Our normal meeting time is Wednesdays following the 6PM Vespers.  Classes will resume Wednesday, June 11th after Vespers. This Study Group will be a survey of the entire Bible, with an emphasis on the Old Testament.  The purpose is to understand the Old Testament as the Scriptures of the Orthodox Church and as the necessary context for the understanding of the New Testament. We will use two texts:

Lawrence R. Farley. The Christian Old Testament: Looking at the Hebrew Scriptures through Christian Eyes. Chesterton, IN: Conciliar Press, 2012.
The Story: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People. Grand Rapids:
Zondervan, 2011.

Beheading of John the Baptist (August 29)
The memory of the righteous is celebrated with songs of praise, but the Lord's testimony is sufficient for thee, O Forerunner. Thou wast shown indeed to be the most honorable of the prophets, for in the waters thou didst baptize Him Who had been proclaimed. After suffering with joy in behalf of the truth, thou didst proclaim even to those in hades the God Who appeared in the flesh, Who takest away the sin of the world, and granteth us the Great Mercy. (Apolytikion in Tone 2)
