Additional Information regarding “Daniel” Study

For those participating in the “Daniel” study, please insure that you have your study guide purchased. The in-person Thursday evening SIS/Mom’s Bible Study group and the online Life Giving Bread group are both using “Ignatius Catholic Study Bible: Daniel” by Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch. If you do not already have this study guide and would like for us to order you a copy, please let me know ASAP. If you are purchasing it on your own, here is a link to it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Daniel-Ignatius-Catholic-Study-Bible/dp/1586177931/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=ignatius+catholic+study+bible+daniel&qid=1617806240&sr=8-1.


The Life Giving Bread online bible study group will begin the “Daniel” study on Sunday, April 11th, and have all next week to read that week’s material and then login and post their comments to the study questions. 

 
The SIS/Mom’s Bible Study’s first in-person meeting will be next week, on Thursday, April 15th. We will be meeting in the Parish Center, Room A. For those of you participating in this group, please read the “Introduction to Daniel” and chapters one and two (pages 13-21) PRIOR to the 15th. In addition, please look over the discussion questions located at the back of the study guide on page 47. If you have never used an Ignatius Study Bible before, I suggest that you also read the “Introduction to The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible,” pages 7-11.


The answers to the Questions for Understanding are typically within the notes at the bottom of each page for that verse, verse group, or term. However, the answers to the Questions for Application are typically more subjective or personal. Those are the ones that we will discuss at our meetings, since that’s where I think we can grow and nurture each other with our responses. 


I am considering incorporating the movie “The Book of Daniel” into our Thursday meetings. It does not contain all of the Book of Daniel according to the Catholic Church, but it does help with the understanding of what is taking place within most of the scripture. For those who are not attending the Thursday meetings or for those who would like to view it on their own, this movie can be viewed on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjadL20AGdo

Here are links to some information I located regarding the Book of Daniel. This is not required reading/viewing, but I wanted to offer it to you in case you have the time and want to further your understanding of the book of Daniel. Feel free to share with me and/or the group any information you come across that will help us in this endeavor.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Here is a link to the study guide on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Daniel-Ignatius-Catholic-Study-Bible/dp/1586177931/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=ignatius%2Cdaniel&qid=1617810134&sr=8-1

Week 12 – Revelation Chapters 21 & 22

This is our final week for our Revelation study. We are now to chapters 21 and 22. Please read these, study the notes, and answer the corresponding questions. If you are reading “Coming Soon,” I suggest you finish reading that book as well.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this study! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I have.

Our next study, Daniel, begins in three weeks, on April 11th. We will be using the “Ignatius Catholic Study Bible: Daniel,” by Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch. Please contact me if you want to be included on the Private Chat Room for the Daniel study or if you have any comments or questions regarding the study.

Have a blessed week!

Week 11 – Revelation Chapters 19 & 20

Only two weeks left in our study of Revelation. This week, we are reading, studying, and discussing chapters 19 and 20.

If you are reading the “Coming Soon” book, I suggest reading pages 224-253, which concludes chapter 12 and includes all of chapter 13 (leaving only two chapters left in this book).

Have a wonderfully blessed week!

Week 10 – Revelation Chapters 18 and Next Study

We have only 3 weeks and 5 chapters left of our current bible study. This week, we study only one chapter, Revelation 18. Please read, answer the corresponding questions, and discuss on our private chat room or in the comment section on this post.

For those also reading “Coming Soon,” I suggest reading pages 218-225.

Once we complete our study on John’s Revelation, we will take a couple weeks off, allowing time for people to catch up if they need. Then, on April 11th, we will begin our next study, Daniel, which will last seven weeks. I chose this study, since there are several instances where Daniel was referenced in Revelation. In addition, it is also considered apocalyptic like Revelation. For our study guide, we will use “Ignatius Catholic Study Bible: Daniel,” by Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch. It is sold on Amazon for about $12. Our expected completion date is May 29th. After this next study, we will take the summer off and begin a new bible study in August or September.

Have a blessed week!

I am so happy to see so many people taking part in the discussions on our private chat room page. Please keep it up!

Have a blessed week!

Please study these two chapters this week, answer the study questions in your study guide, and share your thoughts with the group on the private chat room page (or comment on this page if you don’t belong to the private chat room).

Happy Valentine’s Day and have a blessed week!
