At Tarsus Scripture School we understand the role of the Bible in our life of faith from within the tradition of Catholic Biblical scholarship promoted at the Second Vatican Council. We study the Bible as the Word of God in human words and so seek to pay attention to the contexts in which the books were written and to discern how those contexts might speak to ours, bringing us to an authentic encounter with the living God “who has entrusted us with a treasure which makes us more human and helps us to lead a new life. There is nothing more precious we can give to others.” (Pope Francis – The Joy of the Gospel no.264)
