Saint Jerome claimed that “ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.”

Are you interested in exploring Scripture? There is a handy guide which will easily allow you to access the Revised Common Lectionary readings for each Sunday. At Trinity we use “Track One.” Visit the Lectionary Page for the link to the Sunday Readings.

Each Tuesday afternoon there is a Bible Study at Trinity–“Bible Study for the Coming Sunday.” Currently it meets in the Library. You are most welcome to attend. You do not need to prepare or read anything in advance. There is a brief period of prayer at the beginning in which prayers are included for the parish and for those who are ill.

One way to have a “daily encounter with Scripture” is through the Daily Office. The Mission of Saint Clare provides an easy way to pray the office online. They even offer an audio version!  Of course, this may also be found in the online Book of Common Prayer (look on the left for the menu selection called “The Daily Office.”).

If you ever want to find a passage from the Christian Scriptures (New Testament) or the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament), there is a convenient online edition of the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible (this is the translation currently used by most Episcopal Churches). To view this, please visit Bible Gateway.

For those who are a bit more adventurous, there are great resources available to help you discover the Greek New Testament–an interlinear version is available at Scripture 4 All. They also have a version of the Hebrew Bible available.

Another handy resource is the Concordance–the most famous is the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance.
