Getting Started

Whether you’re studying Scripture for the first time, looking to take your studies to a higher level, or whether you’re ready for advanced training, you’ve come to the right place!

We offer six individual courses. Each course contains a complete text, including cross-references and links to Scripture and other Church documents. In Addition, for each track of study we recommend books that will enhance your study and prayer and build your library of essential works in biblical theology and spirituality.

Free Will Offering: If you like what we’re doing here, please tell others about us and consider supporting our non-profit apostolate. Everyone who contributes at any amount will begin receiving our monthly publication Breaking the Bread. In every issue of Breaking the Bread you’ll find short Bible studies by Dr. Hahn on the readings for each of that month’s Sunday Masses.These studies are aimed at helping you better understand the story of salvation as it comes to us in the Old and New Testament readings.

Tips for Learning

  • Read each lesson as well as the Bible passages and other resources the instructor recommends. Taking notes will help you remember what you read. Then answer the study questions.
  • In between lessons, review your notes, reread the lessons and continue to study and pray over the Bible passages cited by the instructor. Using a daily Missal, you may want to see how these passages are used and interpreted in the Church’s liturgy.
  • Be sure you begin and end each study session with prayer.
  • We encourage you to study these lessons with friends or family. We do ask that if you duplicate these materials, please cite as the source. All materials are copyright of The St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology and, and commercial publication is prohibited.
