Rector's Bible Study (RBS)
WEEKLY ON WEDNESDAYS AT 10:30 AM CT
Join Chris on January 11 as he kicks off the 2023 season!
in Saint Michael Chapel and Livestreamed below
Join our Rector, Chris Girata, for this weekly Bible study as we continue a fascinating character study of great leaders in the Bible! This year, we focus on The Kings: Saul, David, and Solomon.
We will focus our study on 1 and 2 Samuel, as well as the early chapters of 1 Kings. Although knowing about the united kingdom period of Israel is helpful to us, we will spend most of our time studying King David specifically. David is a truly complicated character and absolutely integral to our understanding of Jesus Christ.
Although not required, this year’s companion book will be 1 and 2 Samuel for Everyone by John Goldingay, and will be available in the Saint Michael Book Shop.
- Introduction to Joshua, Judges, and Ruth (download PDF below) sets the tone and stage for what we will be learning more about in the coming months.
- Scriptures we will cover during the year: 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, and 1 Kings 9-11
- The KINGS SEASON bookmark outlining the weekly readings for the fall semester is below.
