Galatians and Romans Study Set

Commentary author: Brendan Byrne; Galatians author: Catherine Upchurch; Romans author: Cliff M. Yeary

This study has 14 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 13 lessons. The Study Set includes the Study Guide by Catherine Upchurch (Galatians) and Clifford M. Yeary (Romans) and a commentary, Galatians and Romans, by Brendan Byrne (Liturgical Press). Brendan Byrne, SJ, is professor of New Testament at Jesuit Theological College, Parkville, Victoria, Australia. A member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission (1990–96) and Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities (2000–), he is editor in chief of the theological journal Pacifica. Byrne is the author of numerous books, including Romans in the Sacra Pagina series and a three-volume commentary on the Synoptic Gospels (Liturgical Press). He is currently preparing a similar commentary on the Gospel of John. Galatians and Romans are pivotal for those seeking to understand the faith and teaching of the Apostle Paul. Many of Paul's themes are shared by Galatians and Romans, but the tone and length of the two works differ sharply. This study opens with Galatians because it was written first. Those who wish to adapt the study will find it easy to split the study into two parts or to simply focus on either Galatians or Romans, as best fits their needs. The Commentary includes a helpful glossary which clarifies the meaning of terms frequently used in discussions of Paul's theology. Galatians addresses Paul's understanding of Christian freedom and justification by faith. He reprimands the Galatians for deserting the Gospel by seeking justification through circumcision rather than through faith in Christ, who achieved our salvation by his sacrifice on the cross. Romans is the longest of Paul's letters. It addresses the universal reality of sin in the world and the need for salvation in Jesus Christ. It explores both the strength and limits of the law of Moses. Paul examines the new life attained in the Holy Spirit as God's gift and proclaims the mystery of God's plan to save Israel. Romans also highlights the ethical demands of the gospel.

Parables of the Kingdom: Part One Study Set

Commentary author: Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan

This study has 6 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 5 lessons. The Study Set includes the Study Guide by Catherine Upchurch and a commentary, Parables of the Kingdom, Jesus and the Use of Parables in the Synoptic Tradition, by Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan (Liturgical Press). The same commentary is used for Parables of the Kingdom–Part Two, consequently, those planning to do both studies should order Study Sets for one of the studies, and order only the study guide for the subsequent study. Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan holds an S.T.D. from the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium. She has been teaching New Testament courses in colleges and seminaries for more than thirty years and has recently retired from teaching full time to devote more time to writing and lecturing. Mary Ann has written several commentaries on the Letters of Saint Paul. Her recent books include Women in the New Testament ( Liturgical Press) , the companion commentary to the Little Rock Scripture Study of the same name. Some of the most memorable teachings of Jesus were delivered as parables and are found in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke (the Synoptic Gospels). Lesson One begins with acquainting participants with the important characteristics of a parable, and how they use images familiar to the audience and draw on common experience that nevertheless challenge the audience to see things in a new way. Subsequent lessons look at the parables found in Mark's Gospel, where the disciples are a privileged audience to Jesus' private explanations of the parables. Lessons four and five explore the ways Matthew uses the same parables but gives them a slightly different twist. Weekly Sessions Introductory Session Lesson 1—Introduction to the Parables in Mark and Matthew Lesson 2—Parables in the Gospel of Mark Lesson 3—More Parables in the Gospel of Mark, Lesson 4—Parables Matthew shared with Mark Lesson 5—More Parables Matthew shared with MarkWrap-Up Lectures on DVD or CD may be ordered separately.

Israel's Story: Part One Study Set

Commentary author: Dianne Bergant, CSA, Study guide author: Catherine Upchurch

This study has 7 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 6 lessons. The Study Set includes the Study Guide by Catherine Upchurch and a commentary, Israel's Story–Part One, by Dianne Bergant (Liturgical Press). Please note that Israel's Story—Part Two uses a different commentary, and so those intending to study both Part One and Part Two will need to eventually order complete Study Sets for both studies. Dianne Bergant, CSA, is professor of Old Testament studies at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. She is author of the Preaching the New Lectionary series and general editor of The Collegeville Bible Commentary (Old Testament) published by Liturgical Press. She was also editor of 'The Bible Today' from 1986-1990. Our Old Testament is divided into sections based on traditional understandings of the type of literature they represent. Anyone reading through the Old Testament in the order the books appear might find themselves challenged to appreciate their scope and context. How do these writings contribute to Israel's self understanding? How do they reflect the setting and period of history from which they arose? This study explores Old Testament history, theology, and stories, from the creation accounts of Genesis to the fall of the Northern Kingdom (722 B.C.) and its prophets. Together with Israel's Story—Part Two, its goal is to provide participants with a good overview of how ancient Israel understood its relationship to God, its history, its beliefs, and its hopes, as documented in the Old Testament.
