Why do we reflect on Scripture? Why do we study the Bible?

     Gone are the days when the only instrument about God and about what the Bible said came from the Parish Priest.  As Christians we each have a personal relationship with Christ our Saviour.  We each have the responsibility to grown in our faith by understanding what God and Jesus mean to us.  How can we live as informed and faithful Christians if we don't try to understand the writings of the Bible ( which is the book of instruction and inspiration given to us through God's grace )?  
     Bible Study is a life-long process  of discovery and reflection which enriches our perspective of the world and encourages us to make wise decisions.   The Christian life is meant to be full of God's grace, joy, love, provision and ethics.  One is never too old or too knowledgeable to benefit from God's Word - the Bible.
