Catholic Online School of Evangelization - Lesson 1

Praise the Lord and welcome to Lesson 1.  My name is Michael Boroden, Director of Communications and website designer for this site.  I will be your written narrator for this lesson.  Simply follow the text instructions written below. If you should have any questions, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.  The questions at the bottom of this page are intended for you to answer for yourself and are for your benefit.  You will not be required to submit the answers to us.  The questions are simply for your benefit.  There will be something to do at the end of the final lesson.

Let's get started!

Read and remember the bullets below:

  • When Reading Scripture one should take the approach that scripture was written to “me” and about me.
  • According to the teaching of the church Jesus revealed himself & his Father through word and deed (God is no longer a mystery).
  • The word of God is the power of God for salvation for them that have faith (please read the Vatican II quote on the left of this page).

John 1:14  "And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father's only Son, full of grace and truth. "

Gal 4:4-5 "But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to ransom those under the law, so that we might receive adoption. "

 

Answer the following questions for yourself:

Who does God Love?

Who Am I?

Who was scripture written to?

Who is scripture written about?

Is there anybody God does not Love?

What Do I believe?

What is the only commandment Jesus left me with?

If you can answer these questions, you are ready to go onto the next lesson.
