A 24-week Catholic Bible Timeline study is being offered by the St. Leonard Men's Ministry sponsored by Knights of Columbus Council 6448. Learn how Catholicism is rooted in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament, and how the two reinforce one another. A unique color-coded, themed system helps you learn the remarkable story of our faith!
Wednesday Mornings ~ 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Starts Wednesday September 27, 2017 ~ Cost $5.00 to cover materials. The deuterocanonical books, a term used since the 16th century by the Catholic Church, are the books and passages of the Christian Old Testament that are not part of the Hebrew Bible. These books are considered canonical (that is, authoritative parts of the Bible) by Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and the Church of the East. However, they are considered non-canonical by most Protestants and therefore not found in most Protestant Bibles. This Bible study will be an overview of these seven books of the Bible (Tobit, Judith, Wisdom, Sirach also called Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, and 1 & 2 Maccabees) with the additions to Esther and Daniel plus the history associated with their exclusion from most Protestant Bibles.
*Be sure you have a Catholic Bible that includes these books and bring to each session. For questions or to obtain a schedule, contact Bridget in the Parish Office at 262-679-1773, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
