Lent - Easter Agape Catholic Bible Study

Want to develop a deeper relationship with God? Are you seeking a way to make our Lord Jesus a greater part of your daily life? Perhaps you would simply like a little more time for prayer or reading Scripture?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then I have good news for you! This upcoming Wednesday is Ash Wednesday which is the beginning of the Church’s Lenten season, a time to prepare for Holy Week and the Resurrection of our Lord. It is the perfect time to refocus our attention on the things that matter: God and His heavenly kingdom!

In celebration of this beautiful liturgical season, Agape Bible Study offers to you and His Church the “Lent & Easter Bible Study”.

First offered on Facebook in Lent of 2014, the Lent & Easter Bible Study is designed to explore the events and prophecies leading up to and surrounding the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of our Lord. This year we will re-present this Bible study in conjunction with the Holy Week Bible Study. Here is what the schedule will look like:

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016: Introduction to the Lenten Journey
Ash Wednesday, February 10th: Bible Study on the
Ash Wednesday Liturgical Readings
Sunday, February 14th: Lent & Easter Bible Study Lesson 1
Sunday, February 21st: Lent & Easter Bible Study Lesson 2
Sunday, February 28th: Lent & Easter Bible Study Lesson 3
Sunday, March 6th: Lent & Easter Bible Study Lesson 4
Sunday, March 13th: Lent & Easter Bible Study Lesson 5
Palm Sunday, March 20th: Lent & Easter Bible Study Final Lesson

Overlapping the Lent & Easter Bible Study will be the Holy Week Bible Study. It is like a Bible Study novena with 9 short lessons chronologically detailing the events of Holy Week as they occur. Lesson 1 will begin on Palm Sunday and a new lesson will be posted daily through the Monday after Easter Sunday. More information on that Bible study will be posted later in the season of Lent.

We will be posting all the lessons on our timeline at according to the schedule listed above. If you miss a post, do not worry. The entire Lent & Easter Bible Study can be found at the following link:

We hope that you join us in this Bible study and share it with your parish, pastors, ministry leaders, and friends.

May God bless and keep you in this Lent & Easter season!
