Class format

The class begins with praise music and an inspirational opening. The openings range from personal testimony to humorous skits or brief topical teachings. The class then divides into small discussion groups. Each group is led by a trained facilitator. During this time, you will share your prepared responses to the home study questions. The typical small group has 12-15 members: small enough that all can participate, but large enough to generate a lively discussion. The session culminates with a live lecture given by the teaching director of "Seeking Truth," Sharon Doran. Sharon is an experienced Bible teacher and uses many visuals in her presentations. Sharon has master's degrees in both Education and Pastoral Theology with an emphasis in Sacred Scripture. As a life long Catholic she has a deep love and respect for Christ's bride the church and the endorsement of her Archbishop George Lucas, as well as the other Nebraska Bishops, James Conley and Joseph Hanefeldt.

Curriculum

Each year brings a new study. For 2020-2021, we will be studying 2 Pauline Letters; "Romans and Ephesians.”

The apostle to the Gentiles, St. Paul of Damascus, was from the Tribe of Benjamin and schooled by the famed Rabbi Gamaliel.

His letter to the Romans lays out his theological understanding of the good news of Jesus Christ. Romans is the longest epistle of St. Paul and explains how Jesus Christ offers the free gift of salvation to Jew and Gentiles alike through grace by faith in Jesus Christ. It is a Pauline masterpiece.

Ephesians was a letter St. Paul wrote to the people of Ephesus while he was in prison in Rome. Luke tells us in Acts 20 that Paul lived in Ephesus for 3 years and so he had a good understanding of the people he was writing to. He calls for church unity and the church as the body of Christ. He give a wonderful teaching about what a Christian household looks like and the relationship between Christ as bridegroom and Church as bride and their nuptial relationship. He rounds out the letter with great advice for spiritual warfare.

As always, Seeking Truth uses a canonical approach to scripture study taking the totally of the bible into consideration. The 23 lectures will be packed with beautiful imagery to enhance your understanding and personal application even to life in the 21st century.

Please join us, all are welcome!
