No Greater Love Bible Study

Filmed on location in the Holy Land, No Greater Love is a five-part bible study video series that reveals Christ’s amazing love for us. Best-selling author and theologian, Edward Sri, guides you through the last hours of Christ’s life in this biblical pilgrimage. While taking this study, you will walk step-by-step with Jesus from the Garden of Gethsemane to the Mount of Calvary.

Every step of the way, biblical experts reveal how Old Testament prophecies, messianic expectations, biblical symbolism, and historical context shed light on the mystery of Christ’s suffering and death. With these insights, Catholics can come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of God’s immeasurable and unconditional love—drawing closer to Jesus than ever have before.

How you can get involved

This Lenten Bible Study will be held online every Saturday at 11am, starting on Saturday 27 February and the five following Saturdays, finishing on the Saturday of Palm Sunday weekend (Saturday 27 March).

The Saturday online meeting itself will generally last 1 1/4 hours. After the first meeting, participants will be encouraged to do some personal bible reading and reflection during the week, taking about 1 hour, in preparation for the following Saturday’s online gathering. This will help everyone to get the most out of the meeting, which will typically involve going over the week’s reading, some group discussion time, as well as watching the accompanying video.

If you are interested in taking part in this journey through Christ’s passion, please do email Sophie Sullivan, at bstortfordcatechist@rcdow.org.uk or email or call Debbie at the parish office for details of the Saturday zoom meeting. Registering in advance helps us to know numbers and ensure that we can be well prepared to welcome all those wanting to participate. Once you are registered, we will be able to email you with all the details you will need to access the course, including bible passages and reflection questions.

All are welcome, though it might especially suit those not able to attend our evening Sycamore Lent Course or those who want to go a little deeper into the biblical story of Christ’s journey to the cross.
