Course Description

“There is no question which can torment the human soul, and not find its answer, either directly or indirectly in the Bible.” -Saint Justin Popovich

Have you ever noticed that the Nativity Fast is particularly difficult?  The world has party after party, while we Orthodox Christians are called to fasting. It is incredibly difficult to keep our focus on fasting and prayer!

To top it all off, many of us have to work on the 24th of December (Old Style) and miss the services for Nativity’s Eve.  This is sad, as there are such beautiful readings from the Sacred Scriptures appointed during the services of the Royal Hours and the Vesperal Liturgy. 

We have something to help!  During this Nativity Fast, restore your focus with our Orthodox Bible Study.  We will be going through the readings appointed for the Royal Hours and the Vesperal Liturgy.  We will consistently look at commentaries on the texts from the Fathers of the Church and relate our reading to the everyday life of an Orthodox Christian.
