ICSJ Scripture Study Group

Throughout the year, members of the Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph Parish community gather for hot coffee and lively discussion designed to help them grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures while deepening their understanding of the riches of our Catholic faith. 

Our Fall 2019 Series: The New Testament


Gain fresh insights into the New Testament in this life-changing course.

Embark today on a scriptural journey that will breathe new life into the words you have so often heard and studied as ICSJ's Scripture Study Group studies The New Testament through a 36-part DVD series.

Perhaps no other text has so greatly influenced Western civilization as the New Testament. And yet, it also remains widely misunderstood—even among lifelong Christians. Now, The New Testament: A Bible Study Course answers your most important questions about its twenty-seven books. Taught by Fr. Nicholas King, a longtime Oxford lecturer and Bible translator, these 36 engaging lectures give you access to modern scholarship on the New Testament. Fr. King’s original translations breathe new life into the words you have so often heard and studied, accurately conveying the mood of the original documents.

After a fascinating general introduction to the New Testament, you will take a fresh look at the Pauline epistles. You will enjoy four lectures on each of the Gospels before looking at Acts of the Apostles, the general epistles, and Revelation. Finally, you will consider the important themes of Christ’s Resurrection, divine inspiration, and the necessity of the Old Testament.

Above all, you will gain a fuller sense of Jesus as a devout Jew who was telling the old story of God and the People of God in a new way. And as Jesus preached, the gospel message is open to all. This scriptural journey will fill you with the excitement and freshness that pervades the writings of the New Testament.

Newcomers are always welcome!  Try one session, or come to all. You’ll gain new insights into the riches of our faith while enjoying the fellowship of other parishioners!
