Bible Study Online Weekly
can you know God without knowing His Word?
Next to prayer, Bible study is
the best way to know God and grow your relationship with Him. He has given
us His words for many centuries, and they are all in one best-selling book of
all time the Bible.
Each week at Mass for Catholics, we are given
three Bible readings (called the Liturgy) the first is from the Old
Testament, except during the Easter Season when the Book of Acts is used for
the first reading; the second reading is from a New Testament Epistle
(one of the letters); and the third is from one of the Gospels.
Faith - Make It Real Bible studies take the three
readings, along with commentaries, and discuss what they mean, how they are
related to each other, and how they affect us today. There is never a "stupid"
question. All questions are honored as important we are at all different
levels of Bible knowledge. All questions are welcome and can be emailed to us at:
MIR Staff. We'll do our best
to give you an accepted theological answer with a source reference.
