This site is in support of the bible study program that I run for St. John the Evangelist Church in Columbia MD.
I am Deacon Peter Barbernitz, D. Min., the Associate for Evangelization, at the parish.
I have a B.A. in Theology, an M.A. in Religious Education, an M.A. in Theology, and my Doctor of Ministry degree. I have a deep love for scripture though I am not a scripture scholar. My studies always cite good, reliable scholars.
We do some scripture study almost every month and I will be posting the notes from previous studies as well – so check back often!
Studies that we have already completed (most of them anyway) can be found under NEW TESTAMENT or OLD TESTAMENT categories.
Our schedule for future studies can be found under (surprise!) SCHEDULE.
The process we use can be found under PROCESS.
A note – the notes for each study are just that – notes. To really do the study you need to come to the sessions and participate. I “ad lib” and respond to questions and use the notes rather sparingly.
