Bible Study

The Gospel written by the Holy Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian is the most sublime of the four Gospels. The Holy Apostle John tells us that"...Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name. " (Jn  20:30-31) We will study these signs, events, and Jesus' teachings to understand how they show that he is the Messiah and Son of God in order to deepen our intimate relationship with the Lord and receive life in abundance (See Jn 10:10)! 

Class is Tuesday evenings from February 19 - April 9, 2019 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm. 

This class will be taught by Fr. Michael Lee.
