Full Lenten Bible study now online

The contextual Lenten Bible study written by the Rt. Rev. Terry Dance, Bishop of Norfolk in the Diocese of Huron, is now available on the Anglican Church of Canada website in its entirety.

An overview of the study and readings for the first three weeks of Lent were previously published on Jan. 19. The new sections, which constitute the remainder of the study, encompass the fourth and fifth weeks of Lent as well as Palm Sunday, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection.

Like the preceding sections, the concluding part of the Bible study sheds light on passages by providing fascinating literary, historical and cultural context, helping participants connect the readings to their own lives while providing a call to ministry.

“It’s a form of Bible study which is not just about understanding [the text], but about engaging the world that we live in as a result of it,” Bishop Dance said.

The full Bible study is available for download along with other Lenten resources provided by the Anglican Church and its partners.
