Reading Scripture Through the Eyes of Paul: How to Make the Bible ‘Come Alive’
March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Using the letters of Saint Paul as a “test case,” this lecture will show how the Bible functions in Christian life as “the living Word of God.” It will examine Paul’s use of Sacred Scripture in the context of recent Catholic teaching on the Bible, especially the concept of “actualization.”
