Bible Study Downloads

These Bible Studies represent our best effort to describe what the Church Fathers have had to say about the Church Lectionary, which has its roots in Apostolic times, and which has a topic prescribed for each given day. It is a work in process; some Studies have been updated recently, while others are on the list for an update. While the Studies are listed by date, you may search for topics or Scripture References using our Search Page. For example, a search on “Joshua” will uncover a number of references somewhere in the Studies. If there is a topic that you would like more information on, please contact Mark Kern at or write to Mark Kern c/o St. Athanasius Orthodox Church.
