Join Opening The Scriptures Bible Study Online

8pm Online Each Wednesday

‘Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road…while He was opening up the Scriptures?’ (Luke 24:32)

What are the parts of the Bible that set your hearts on fire? What texts or passages or passages in Scripture make your heart burn within you? 

Every week, for six weeks, we will explore a core biblical passage alongside a piece of art which creatively reflects a dimension of the text (put together by CTBI – Churches Together in Britain and Ireland – https://ctbi.org.uk). The encounter on the Road to Emmaus from Luke 24 will frame our journey through the Scriptures.

The National Bible Society of Ireland is passionate about stories – human stories and the stories which form the biblical narratives, and finding the places where these stories meet

The National Bible Society of Ireland, in conjunction with the worldwide body of United Bible Societies, provides an invaluable and vital service to local communities on an international scale. Its heritage of translation and bible dissemination and its vision to make Scripture accessible and available to all is one which is surely relevant across the divides of time, politics, economics and culture.

In Ireland the National Bible Society works with all Christian Churches and with individuals providing Bible resources, simple guides, Scripture studies, help and expertise. We want everyone to know and understand the Word of God.

In Ireland, we raise money to fund translation, production and distribution of God’s Word in other countries. There are over 6,000 languages in the world but in nearly three-quarters of these languages there is no Bible translation.

The Bible Society believes that everyone should have easy access to the Holy Scriptures in their own languages. It is our task to bring the Scriptures to all people every-where.

You can help us to help others. Your support is needed to develop our work in Ireland. We need even more help to fund the vital translation and distribution network that will bring the Bible to everyone, to every place where people live. This is made possible by working together in the worldwide fellowship of the United Bible Societies. We seek your help to bring the Holy Scriptures to the furthest ends of the earth.

The National Bible Society of Ireland is interconfessional, working with all Christian Churches. This is reflected in our Membership, National Board and staff.
