See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and, most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist. The Great Adventure Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible Wednesday, January 2 nd February 27 th, 9:30 11am OR Thursday, January 3 rd February 28 th, 6:30 8pm. Cost of workbook $20. Reading the Bible should bring us closer to Christ, but many people find it hard to even begin. The Great Adventure Catholic Bible Study Program and The Bible Timeline Learning System aim to make the complex simple to give people a way to read the Bible and begin to understand it and so experience its life-changing power. Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible is the starting point of The Great Adventure Catholic Bible Study program. In eight compelling videos, Jeff Cavins presents the story of salvation history from Creation and the Fall through the coming of Christ and the establishment of the Church. We learn the story with the aid of an easy-to-use, color-coded Bible Timeline Chart and small-group discussion questions which reinforce the video presentations and help you apply the message to your life.
