In total there are 23 sessions, and we will start with session 13 when we restart January 6th. We meet at 8:00 am in order to complete each session on time for Mass.
What can you expect?
Central to The Great Adventure is The Bible Timeline Chart: a simple, color-coded timeline of Bible history. It divides the entire timeline into 12 color-coded periods and then focuses on 14 books that tell the story in chronological order.
Key people and events that advance the story are highlighted so that the newcomer isn’t overwhelmed with too much at once. The Bible Timeline Chart and Bookmark show at a glance where every book of the Bible fits into the overall narrative context.
