Jan: The messages from the prophets are as relevant in our world now as they were back then. It is important
that we truly appreciate their words in our hearts and minds and center our focus on God’s will – not on all
the worldly things we think are important in our lives. Yes, It has been an amazing journey through the Bible.
It brings a whole new understanding of each book as God’s message of love for us is repeated in so man
Linda: (1) It is amazing to see the faith of the prophets- their foreshadowing of the Messiah and their steadfast
work to share this with the people of Israel. Inspiring! (2) God has called me even deeper by revealing
Himself through all the prophets we studied. He showed me that He has been there through the ages, and is
here today calling me to learn of Him and to glorify Him. (3) I definitely saw a merciful God in this study. No
matter how many times Israel looked away, God never ever left them and called them back again and again.
It gives me great hope for our world today, that even through things look crazy and bleak, He is right with the
world and will never leave us. (4) I did not know how all encompassing was their faith in salvation through
the Messiah, and how powerfully God reached down into each of their hearts to give them the gifts of faith in
Him. The visions and communications they had with God were amazing, sometimes alarming, but always
inspirational and loving, compassionate and merciful. And Jesus was always there! (5) Always! My faith
journey has been so enriched by studying scripture. I can’t imagine my relationship with Jesus would be
as close without it. I am so glad we did this study.
A Biblical Walk Through the Mass - Comments from participants in 2016

Sue: I found it very interesting that Jesus chose the feast of the Passover at the Last Supper to share his body
and blood. Reading the early biblical passages that refer to the Messiah as the Lamb of God connected the
dots for me.#1 I gained a better appreciation of being able now to connect the biblical background to the
Mass. #2 As the Passover is re-lived each year by the Jewish people, I understand now how Christ’s sacrifice
is a true re-presentation each time at the Mass. I found Dr. Sri’s book, The Mass particularly insightful and
engaging as he connected the Old & New Testaments. After providing several opportunities to read verses
he then asks us to assimilate the ideas and draw our conclusions in the “Thinking About It” questions. These
questions make us think! This book is a keeper!
