Introduction to the Bible

A two-part lecture series on ZOOM to celebrate Sunday of the Word of God

“The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God” (Mark 1:1)

“The study of sacred Scripture must be a door opened to every believer”( Evangelii Gaudium #175)

How and when was the Bible written, and by whom? What are the key themes of the Bible and how do the Old and New Testaments relate to each other? Why are there more books in the Catholic Bible than the bibles of other Christian communities? Given that the Bible was written thousands of years ago how can I read it to ensure the correct interpretation?

If you would like to know the answer to these questions and more, join us for Introduction to the Bible- a two part lecture series presented by Helen Chong with a Q&A session at the end of the second lecture hosted by Fr. Ferdinand Purnomo, OCD, Spiritual Director of the Singapore Archdiocesan Biblical Apostolate.

About the Presenter:

Helen Chong is with the Biblical Apostolate Team (BAT) at the Church of St Francis Xavier (SFX). Since 2013, she has been conducting talks on books of the Bible as well as topics which deal with the biblical basis for Catholic beliefs. Her Bible classes on Sundays have been drawing an increasing audience over the last eight years, attracting attendees beyond the SFX parish. She is frequently a guest speaker at the invitation of other church ministries e.g. to address parents whose children are being prepared for their first Sacrament of Reconciliation and first Holy Communion, to RCIA participants on the Bible, Mary and the Sacraments and to the participants of Charismatic Prayer sessions on various topics. In current COVID times, she facilitates SFX BAT’s weekly Bible study sessions which are based on Dr Brant Pitre’s Mass Readings Explained.
