Reading the Bible from the heart of the Church — that’s what the St. Paul Center’s parish-based Bible study program, “Journey Through Scripture,” is all about. It’s a way for ordinary Catholics to grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures while deepening their understanding of the riches of the Catholic faith.

Distinctively Catholic, Journey Through Scripture takes a holistic approach, looking at the entire Bible and how all of its parts work together. It’s grounded in history, yet vibrantly connected to the life of the Church today. The program examines the biblical foundations of key doctrines, and the Bible as a foundation for prayer and the moral life. True to Catholic tradition, Journey Through Scripture trains its sights on Scripture’s literal-historical and spiritual senses; yet it never reduces the study of Scripture to mere apologetics or proof-texting.
The goal of Journey Through Scripture is to help people read the Bible the way the Church does in the Liturgy.
It highlights the pattern of promise and fulfillment that the Catechism and the Lectionary teach us to expect, reading the Old Testament in light of the New and the New Testament in light of the Old — all the while respecting the literary and historical integrity of both Testaments. Our guiding principles are points 101-133 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
“Great program. This is the evangelization of the Catholic Church that I was looking for.”
