Guided Bible Reading

Starting in Genesis, this online weekly reading program allows you to explore God’s Word with the guidance of an outstanding biblical scholar who has a deeply personal Christian faith.

Not only will you learn from your guide, but you’ll also have the option of “going deeper” in your study of each week’s Scripture passage through links to other commentaries and resources. And each Lectio comes with related artistic renderings of the passage.

Over the course of four years, you’ll encounter a majority of the Bible – and do so in tandem with the Seattle Pacific University community as students, faculty, and staff focus on the same weekly Scripture in Chapel, community Bible studies, and other weekly worship events.

2010-11 Lectio Schedule

Each Guided Bible Reading lasts for one academic quarter. Your guide is an SPU School of Theology professor who will share a wealth of knowledge and wisdom about how to navigate the biblical text.
