The Diocesan Apostolate for Christian Education of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese is offering a weekly on-line Scripture Study Class on the Gospel of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist John.  The class began on Saturday, September 7 but those interested may still register.  Led by Very Rev. Protopresbyter Kenneth Bachofsky, D. Min., Professor of Sacred Scripture at Christ the Saviour Seminary, it will be broadcast live every Saturday from St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Warren, Ohio. 

The class will begin at 4:45 pm and will last approximately 60 minutes.  The series will conclude for the year in May 2013. Class will be in recess during the Nativity and Theophany as well as the Holy and Bright Week periods. 

The Gospel of St. John will be read and discussed within the context of the patristic mindset of the Church. Emphasis will be placed on both the Gospel's historical context and application to contemporary life. 
This year's course is the second in an ongoing series of Orthodox Scripture Studies. In the spring of 2013, a large cadre of students, both on location at St. Nicholas Church and on-line, completed an in-depth study of the Gospel of St. Matthew.

There is no charge for participating; however, those who wish to participate must register on-line to enter the class room and access the broadcast link.  Audio and video recordings of each session will be archived for later study. By registering, participants will have access to the class bulletin board with the latest schedule and updates as well as other important resources.

If you attend Vespers and cannot join the class live, you can view the lecture when convenient for you - lectures will be archived for later viewing.   Visit www.orthodoxlearningcenter.org/ to sign up.
