Spirituality of the Gospels

Lecturers: John Hall, Catherine Upchurch, Karen Wenzel, Gregory C. Wolfe, Clifford M. Yeary

This study has 7 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 6 lessons. The Study Set includes the Study Guide by Clifford M. Yeary and a commentary, Exploring the Spirituality of the Gospels, by Patrick J. Hartin (Liturgical Press). Patrick J. Hartin was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. He studied at the Gregorian University in Rome and is an ordained priest of the Diocese of Spokane, Washington. He presently teaches courses in the New Testament and in Classical Civilizations at Gonzaga University. He is the author of numerous books, including: James, First Peter, Jude, Second Peter (New Collegeville Bible Commentary series), which is the companion commentary to Little Rock Scripture Study's James, Peter and Jude, a study in 7 sessions. He is also author of James (Sacra Pagina series), and Apollos (Paul's Social Network series), all published by Liturgical Press. In Spirituality of the Gospels, the modern quest for spiritual fulfillment is met with profound insights from the gospels. All four gospels call readers to become faithful followers of Christ, but each gospel has a special focus on Christ. Responding to any gospel's special focus promises to also nourish a distinct spirituality, one that will resonate with the spiritualities of saints and disciples both ancient and modern. Hardin finds in Matthew's gospel a spirituality based on Christ's transformative presence within us; in Mark is found the challenge of martyrdom; in Luke the call to embrace the poor; and in John disciples are called to contemplative virtues springing from grace and love. Weekly Sessions Introductory Session Lesson 1—Introduction; Context for exploring Biblical Spirituality Lesson 2—Exploring Matthew's Spiritual Vision Lesson 3—Exploring Mark's Spiritual Vision Lesson 4—Exploring Luke's Spiritual Vision Lesson 5—Exploring John's Spiritual Vision Lesson 6—Conclusion: The Spiritual Journey ContinuesThese lectures correspond to the seven sessions outlined in the Study Set for Spirituality of the Gospels.

Genesis

11 Sessions

Lecturers: Judy Hoelzeman, David LeSieur, Catherine Upchurch, Linda Webster, Karen Wenzel, Clifford M. Yeary

This study has 11 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 10 lessons. The Study Set includes the Study Guide by Clifford M. Yeary and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, 'Genesis,' by Joan E. Cook (Liturgical Press). Joan E. Cook, SC, teaches Scripture at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. She is author of Hannah's Desire, God's Design (Sheffield Academic Press, 1999) and Hear, O Heavens and Listen, O Earth: An Introduction to the Prophets (Liturgical Press, 2006), which won a first-place Catholic Press Association award in 2007. Cook has also written numerous articles on biblical women and biblical prayer. Genesis tells the story of beginnings: God's creation of the world, the beginning of human activity and the beginning of God's redemptive covenant making with human beings (the stories of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph and his brothers). Without competing with modern scientific understandings, this study investigates two different accounts in Genesis of the creation of the world and how both reveal timeless truths about God's creative purposes. Stories of universal human sinfulness lead to a divine plan of redemption initiated in the call of Abraham and Sarah. Through accounts both humorous and suspenseful of the lives of ancient Israel's patriarchs and matriarchs, Genesis lays the foundation for the epic story of the Exodus, the liberation of God's people from slavery in Egypt.

Psalms I

7 Sessions

Lecturers: Catherine Upchurch, Thomas Jakobs, John Hall, Susan McCarthy, Clifford M. Yeary, Linda Webster

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, “Psalms for All Seasons” (revised in 2013), by John F. Craghan (Liturgical Press). Note that the Psalms I study and the Psalm II study use the same commentary. Those planning to do both studies should only order study sets for one of the studies, and only order the study guide for the subsequent study. It is recommended that Psalms I be studied prior to Psalms II. John F. Craghan is professor emeritus of religious studies at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. He is North American editor for 'Scripture in Church' (Dominican Publications: Dublin, Ireland) and is the author of numerous books, including And the Life of the World to Come and The Gospels of the Weekday Lectionary, both from Liturgical Press. Craghan has lectured widely in the United States and Latin America. His chief interest is to make the best of biblical scholarship accessible to a wider audience. The Book of the Psalms is a unique collection of the song-prayers of Israel. To study Psalms is to study prayer, ultimately to enter into prayer. The study will challenge participants to reflect on their own prayer and life experiences. Psalms I focuses on a selection of twenty-eight psalms divided into three categories: Psalms of Descriptive Praise Psalms of Trust or Confidence Wisdom Psalms “Psalms of descriptive praise, also known as hymns, praise God for his ongoing, regular care of the world and humanity” (from p. 8 of the commentary). Psalms of trust or confidence reinforce the belief that the God who made and loves us will protect us in difficult situations. Wisdom psalms are an acknowledgment of God's justice in the right ordering of human affairs. Weekly Lessons Introductory Session Lesson 1—Pss 117, 33, 104, 8, 19 Lesson 2—Pss 29, 100, 65, 113, 145 Lesson 3—Pss 23, 11, 27, 63, 16 Lesson 4—Pss 121, 131, 62, 125, 91 Lesson 5—Pss 1, 112, 128, 127 Lesson 6—Pss 32, 34, 37, 49These lectures correspond to the seven sessions outlined in the Study Set for Psalms I.

The study will challenge participants to reflect on their own prayer and life experiences. Psalms II focuses on a selection of twenty-eight psalms divided into three categories: Royal Psalms Psalms of Lament Psalms of Declarative Praise The royal psalms reflect the belief in ancient Israel that the king was “anointed” by God (i.e. a messiah) to be “the instrument of God's concern for the people” (from the commentary, p. 79). Psalms of lament express the sorrow of the soul in distress and of the individual's and the community's need to turn to God in order to be healed or rescued. Psalms of declarative praise are prayers of thanksgiving that praise God for rescue or healing from dire situations.

Isaiah

Thirteen audio lectures on DVD

Lecturers: Clifford M. Yeary, David LeSieur, Catherine Upchurch, Gregory C. Wolfe, Dan Hennessey, Linda Robertson, and Thomas Jakobs

This study has 13 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 12 lessons. The study set includes the Study Guide by Clifford M. Yeary and Catherine Upchurch, and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, “Isaiah,” by Leslie J. Hoppe (Liturgical Press). Leslie J. Hoppe, OFM, is an adjunct professor at Catholic Theological Union after serving on its faculty for twenty-four years, and serves as the provincial minister of the Assumption Province Franciscans. He has written several books on biblical studies and archaeology, including The Holy City: Jerusalem in the Theology of the Old Testament (Liturgical Press, 2000). He is a former editor of The Bible Today and currently serves on its editorial board. In the Bible, the primary role of the prophet is to speak for God, to see and hear as God sees and hears, and then to pronounce words of correction and hope. In Isaiah, we encounter God's accusation against Israel; the holiness of God; hope for a messianic king; oracles against foreign nation; prophecies of restoration; and challenges for exiles returning to their homeland. The book of Isaiah is quoted in the New Testament more often than any other Old Testament writing other than the Psalms. It is a compilation of the prophetic work of an eighth-century prophet (chs. 1–35), an exilic disciple called Second Isaiah (chs. 4—55), and postexilic writings called Third Isaiah (chs. 56-66). Weekly Lessons Introductory session Lesson 1—Isaiah 1–4 Lesson 2—Isaiah 5–11 Lesson 3—Isaiah 12–19 Lesson 4—Isaiah 20–27 Lesson 5—Isaiah 28–32 Lesson 6—Isaiah 33–39 Lesson 7—Isaiah 40:1–43:8 Lesson 8—Isaiah 43:9–46:13 Lesson 9—Isaiah 47:1–50:11 Lesson 10—Isaiah 51:1–55:13 Lesson 11—Isaiah 56:1–61:11 Lesson 12—Isaiah 62:1–66:24These lectures correspond to the thirteen sessions outlined in the Study Set for Isaiah.

First Corinthians

10 Sessions

Lecturers: Dan Hennessey, Judy Hoelzeman, Catherine Upchurch, Gregory C. Wolfe, Clifford M. Yeary

This study has 10 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 9 lessons. The Study Set includes the Study Guide by Little Rock Scripture Study Staff and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, First and Second Corinthians, by Maria A. Pascuzzi (Liturgical Press). Note that the First Corinthians study and the Second Corinthians study use the same commentary. 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. Maria A. Pascuzzi, CSJ, STD, teaches Scripture at the University of San Diego. She has a Liscentiate in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute and her Doctorate in Sacred Theology is from the Gregorian University. First Corinthians deals with divisions in the believing community at Corinth and the harm that they inflict on 'the body of Christ.' Paul also deals with many individual ethical problems in the community of which he has become aware through letters and contacts. Paul instructs the community concerning true wisdom; the sin of idolatry; the Lord's Supper; the role of God's ministers; the supreme importance of love; gifts of the Spirit; and the nature of the resurrection. The community of Corinth could easily be our own—struggling for unity in the midst of conflict, and discovering weaknesses and strengths. In this study, Paul invites you to find unity in the Gospel message. Weekly Sessions Introductory Session Lesson 1—1 Cor 1–2 Lesson 2—1 Cor 3–4 Lesson 3—1 Cor 5–6 Lesson 4—1 Cor 7–8 Lesson 5—1 Cor 9–10 Lesson 6—1 Cor 11–12 Lesson 7—1 Cor 13–14:25 Lesson 8—1 Cor 14:26–15:34 Lesson 9—1 Cor 15:35–16:24These lectures correspond to the ten sessions outlined in the Study Set for First Corinthians.

Hebrews

7 Sessions

Dan Hennessey, Judy Hoelzeman, Catherine Upchurch, Karen Wenzel, and Clifford M. Yeary

This study has 7 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 6 lessons. The Study Set includes the Study Guide by Little Rock Scripture Study Staff and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, The Letter to the Hebrews, by Daniel J. Harrington (Liturgical Press). Daniel J. Harrington, SJ, PhD, is professor of New Testament at Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and editor of the Sacra Pagina series, published by Liturgical Press, and author of numerous other books and articles. Hebrews is more like a sermon than a letter. It reviews the history of Israel to demonstrate how Jesus Christ fulfills and even surpasses all the hopes express in the Old Testament. It presents Jesus as the unique High Priest who is simultaneously the one who offers sacrifice to God and is himself the sacrifice. It describes the exaltation of Jesus Christ as superior to all that came before, whether prophet, priest or angel. Jesus is presented as our High Priest whose compassion for us is rooted in his humanity, but whose sacrifice is all sufficient because he is without sin. Those who receive this sermon/letter are reminded of the great heroes of faith found in the Old Testament and are urged to imitate their faithful endurance.
