Scripture” will explore ways of looking at the Bible as a single, complete, and great Drama from Genesis to Revelation. We will look at the different acts of the drama and how they sustain and move forward the entirety of God’s plan. We will look at the different ways the Scripture tells the story, focusing particularly on the Bible’s narrative structure. Special attention will be paid to the Gospels and how to read, recite, and listen to them more attentively. There will be interactive exercises, mini-projects, and time for prayer and meditation on Scripture.
