Introduction to the Bible

To be a disciple is to make a conscious decision to follow Jesus Christ in our lives.  Where do we learn what that means?  How can we tell if we are truly following Jesus?  Saint Jerome (c. 400 AD) said, “Ignorance of the Scriptures (Bible) is indeed ignorance of Christ.”

If you want to know God, study the Bible, meet Jesus, encounter the Holy Spirit, and grow in your faith, come to this Discipleship Course.
