I Learned the Story

I Learned the Story

The Bible is a story about the Father’s unfailing love - a love that WE are called to share with others. 

I LEARNED THE STORY is a Bible Literacy Campaign that helps people encounter God in the Sacred Scriptures.  Sacred Scripture is the speech of God as it is put down in writing under the breath of the Holy Spirit.1  In the sacred books, the Father who is in heaven comes lovingly to meet his children, and talks with them.2

 Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible

This eight-part study (30-minute sessions) provides the easiest way to understand the Bible. It helps you uncover the story woven throughout Scripture so that you can get the “big picture” of the Bible and understand what it is all about.
