Modern Studies in Genesis

  • The Creator God and Creation Poem
  • The Culture of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs
  • The God of the Marginal
  • The God of Promise

To get the full impact of the Creation Poem of Genesis I, it is necessary for us in the modern world to learn to think and to hear as did the ancient Hebrews. As we put ourselves in a place of those who first heard these foundational stories of our faith, we will grasp even more clearly how marvelous is our God and how God abundantly provides for God's people. To be able to put ourselves in their place, we will learn about where and how they lived. It was not an easy life or a comfortable one; those who responded to God's call in Genesis were those who lived "on the margins." But they learned - as can we - that the God who called them, led them, and provided for them is a God who keeps promises.

The Rest of the Story: The Lives of the Apostles

  • Disciples and Apostles
  • The Twelve Apostles-Part I (Simon Peter, Andrew brother of Peter, James brother of John, and John brother of James)
  • The Twelve Apostles-Part II (Philip, Bartholomew/Nathaniel, Matthew, Thomas, James the Less, Simon the Zealot, Thaddeus, Judas (not Iscariot), and Judas Iscariot)
  • Apostles Not of the Twelve (James brother of Jesus, Barnabas, Paul, Timothy, Titus, and Mary mother or Jesus)

The picture of the disciples - The Twelve - that we get from the gospels is not a picture of powerful, confident, or in any way remarkable people. Yet, after the crucifixion of Jesus, instead of returning to their earlier vocations, these disciples became witnesses to the Resurrection and played a major role in ensuring that Christianity became an enduring religion. Examine the characteristics of each of their lives - including Apostles who were not of the Twelve - as we hear "the rest of the story."
