St. Jerome Parish

Bible Study – Winter 2020

St. Jerome Bible Study will begin a study of the Gospel of Jesus According to Matthew on Tuesday evening, January 21, from 7:30 to 9pm in the Religious Education Center.  The study will run for 10 consecutive Tuesday evenings.  The cost is $30 for course materials.  Since Matthew is the Gospel we will hear at mass on most Sundays in 2020, this study will be good support for your full, active, and conscious participation each week.  If you have ever wanted to begin reading the Bible but didn’t know where to start or were intimidated at the prospect, the Gospel According to Matthew is the very best book of all the books of the Bible with which to begin your reading--it is easy and accessible.  For more information, contact Steve Picard at sjpicard526@att.net or Alan Bernstein at 310.645.5355.  All are welcome.  No experience necessary.

 

In addition to our bibles, we will use the following commentaries:

 

Barbara Reid, OP, PhD.  The Gospel According to Matthew-Part 1 and The Gospel According to Matthew—Part 2 (Liturgical Press, 2019)

 

Cost = $30 for 2 books
