The Gospel of John 

John’s Gospel offers an “eagle’s eye” view of Jesus’ life. Not only is He clearly Priest, Prophet, and King, He is also the Eternal Word, the Son of God. Meet the cast of the wedding at Cana, the Samaritan woman, the Adulteress, and Lazarus as they confront who He really is. In addition, Jewish feasts reveal the pivotal moments of Jesus’ life and mission as the Promised Messiah, sent because “God so loved the world”.  From:  The Catholic Way Bible Study

Institute of Catholic Culture

Institute hosts educational seminars specifically designed to build bridges of understanding, teaching authentic Catholic history, philosophy and theology as a way of healing the wounds in the Body of Christ and reaching out to those who seek knowledge of the Truth. “This saving truth, at the heart of the deposit of faith, must remain the foundation of all the Church’s endeavors, proposed to others always with respect but also without compromise.” (P. Benedict XVI) This is a daunting task, but one that we must undertake!
