Prepare for Advent and live out Christmas by studying Matthew and Luke's infancy narratives! Featuring a unique "two bible studies in one" format, this study is specifically constructed to match your journey through the four weeks of Advent and the twelve days of Christmas. The weekly Bible study, designed for those with a busy Advent and Christmas schedule, provides a short summary of the doctrines and liturgical connections present in the verses under study for that week. The daily Bible study, designed for those with more time, presents a more in-depth look at the week's verses. Study questions, Catechism references and Scripture cross-references are included in order to enhance each day's study. However, since the daily Bible study is keyed to match the weekly Bible study, it is possible for two people who have different amounts of time to study the Scriptures together. A bible study leader might do the daily work in order to prepare for the weekly group lesson, for instance. You will discover dozens of liturgical and doctrinal facts, like: How the censor used in liturgy represents the Incarnation how the Mass is prefigured in the events of Christ's birth why the angel responded so differently to Zechariah and Mary why Matthew's infancy narrative account is so different from Luke's what the Septuagint is, and what impact it has on Bible study the six major liturgical prayers embedded in Luke's account and much more! This study will help you put Advent and Christmas in proper perspective. Celebrate the seasons by studying the Scriptures! Contemplate the Flesh of God!
Study the Infancy Narratives Examine everything Scripture has to say concerning the birth of Christ The first two chapters of Matthew and the first two chapters of Luke are called the "infancy narratives." Together, these four chapters tell the entire Advent and Christmas story. They also form the basis for literally dozens of Church teachings and practices: why the Mass is structured the way it is, why we use incense, why Catholic Bibles are longer than those used by some other Christians, and much, much more Best of all, this study provides hands on examples of doing typology - the method of Scripture study used by Christians for over a thousand years. You will be amazed at how easy it is Two Scripture studies in one book The once-a-week Bible study: Section I provides seven individual sessions designed for people who are unable to devote time to daily Scripture study. Parents can also use the sessions in this section as a guide for weekly family Scripture study during the Advent and Christmas seasons. The daily Bible study: Section II provides twenty-two sessions for Advent and ten sessions for Christmas. Given the busy nature of these seasons, the five to six session per week format allows some flexibility in those weeks when a day or two is unintentionally missed. You won't "fall behind" simply because you missed a day Since both Section I and Section II cover essentially the same material, two people, each using a different study schedule, can still maintain real harmony in their joint study of Scripture.
