The Book of Revelation

St. Jerome Parish Bible study will soon begin an 8-session study of the New Testament Book of Revelation.  There are two parallel tracks:  in-person sessions will be held Tuesday evenings, from 7:30 to 9pm in the parish Hall beginning April 16; online sessions will be held Thursday evenings, from 7:30 to 9pm via Zoom beginning April 18.  The same material is covered in the in-person and online sessions each week.  
The book of Revelation, also known as the Apocalypse, has fascinated Christian believers for centuries. Colorful imagery, rich symbolism, layers of meaning, and brilliant allusions to the Old Testament convey the book’s perennial truth: God will triumph over evil, and God’s faithful ones will share in that victory. Join us as we explore this ancient text and discover its relevance for us today. For this study we will use a commentary from the Little Rock Scripture Study Series, published by Liturgical Press:  Revelation, by Catherine A. Cory, PhD.  The book can be purchased from the publisher at:  //litpress.org/little-rock-scripture-study
The cost for the books is $16.95, plus sales tax and shipping.  They are also available at Amazon.com.  Some books will be available for purchase on Tuesday, April 16 at the first in-person meeting for $20. To register for either the in-person sessions or the online sessions, please email Steve at sjpicard526@att.net with "Bible Study" in the subject line to reserve your place.  All are welcome.  No experience is necessary.
