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.

Thought of the Day
"If a man fasts either through vanity or thinking that he is achieving something specifically virtuous, he fasts foolishly and later begins to criticize his brother, considering himself something great. Thus not only does it prove that while he put down one stone he took away two, but he is in danger of bringing down the whole wall through his condemnation of his brother. A man who fasts wisely does not wish to be praised for his fast. He thinks that through abstinence he will win chastity and thereby will come to humility, as the fathers say, 'The way to humility is bodily labors, performed intelligently,' and so on. Such a man proves himself a skilful builder, able to build his house solidly." -- Abba Dorotheus
