Pastoral Letters and The Letter to the Hebrews - 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, Hebrews
Liguori Catholic Bible Study
Author William Anderson
How did the early Church train and form its leaders? What is acceptable behaviour for clergy and teachers? How are God and the priesthood connected? How does lectio divina move us to pray with scripture?
The Church of the first century faced remarkable challenges: the deaths of the apostles and a new generation of church leaders, a rapid influx of believers and converts, and interactions with numerous cultures and often hostile nations. The pastoral letters contain instructions for carrying out the pastoral or ministerial office of the church.
In this volume, Fr Anderson includes the Letter to the Hebrews, which served a similar teaching function in the first century, helping to bridge the gap between the old and new covenants.
With these guides, Christian communities ensured the centrality of Jesus in the midst of change.
With narrative, study questions, reflections, keynotes, and prayer, your understanding of scripture will be deepened with the introduction to the spiritual practice of lectio divna.
