The Big Picture: Connecting the Dots in the Bible, the Church and Salvation History

Do you ever feel like our Catholic faith is just a series of meaningless rules and beliefs? In this course you will learn to connect the dots and discover what is behind the rules and their importance.

Total classes: 13

Duration per class: 55 minutes

Suggested Grade Level: 9th to 12th grade

Suggested High School Credit: 1 full semester Literature, Theology, or History


Sometimes our faith seems like a series of disconnected rules or bits and pieces of things we’re told that doesn’t seem to fit together or make a lot of sense. But every part of what we believe as Catholics is not only of one piece, a “seamless garment” theologically, but the vast story of man from the Bible through the years of the Early Church, the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and Modern Times is a vast story written by a vast Storyteller. This class will look at the Big Picture, especially the overall scope of Scripture, as well as at eternal themes that have run through literature and art through the ages. The goal is to make sense of it all and to see God’s great plan which includes both suffering and joy.
