On-Line Scripture Class Begins Saturday November 5

JOHNSTOWN, PA -- As previously announced, a weekly on-line  Scripture Study Class on the Gospel of St. Matthew will begin on Saturday November 5, 2011.  The class, led by Very Rev. Protopresbyter Kenneth Bachofsky, D. Min, Professor of Sacred Scripture at Christ the Saviour Seminary,  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 class will conclude for the year on May 19, 2012. 

The Gospel of St. Matthew 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. 

We are pleased to report that there has been a good initial response to the offering of this first, real time on-line Orthodox Bible Study. A wide array of students from across North America and as far away as Korea, have registered for the course.

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.
