Thursday Evening Bible Study

Led by parishioner Jay Blossom, Saint Mark’s Bible study meets most Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the lower level of the parish house. To find it, enter the parish house through the office door, which is unlocked during the Bible study hour. Descend the stairs and proceed down the hall, listening for the sound of avid discussion!

A normal Bible study hour at Saint Mark’s involves reading a chapter or two straight from the Bible, stopping frequently for a guided discussion of its meaning. Skeptics and believers alike are welcome, there’s no homework, and no previous experience is required!

The primary goal of the study is increasing our familiarity the Bible as a whole, so our readings often alternate between obscure books and “greatest hits.” We never shy away from the hard parts, and we try to employ some recent critical scholarship even as we read the text in a fairly straightforward way.

Summer Sessions

The Parish Bible Study will hold four mini-sessions over the month of August. The focus for these sessions will be: Four Short Books of the Bible, one per night. Come for any or all of the following weeks, where we’ll read most or all of an entire book and discuss it around the table. No previous experience required!

August 1, 6 p.m.- Ruth

August 8, 6 p.m.- The apocryphal additions to Daniel: Susanna and Bel & the Dragon

August 15, 6 p.m.- Titus

August 22, 6 p.m.- James
