Title: The St. Ignatius Catholic Study Bible


1
The St. Ignatius Catholic Study Bible
2
Ignatius (1491 1556) was a Spanish knight,
priest since 1537, and theologian, who founded
the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) Ignatius emerged
as a religious leader during the
Counter-Reformation. Loyola's devotion to the
Catholic Church was characterized by absolute
obedience to the Pope.

  • A good Catholic Bible study will
  • Be in conformity with Catholic doctrine
    concerning the Bible, its origin, and its
    interpretation
  • Be open to multiple methods of biblical studies
    and a judicious application of them

4
  • A good Catholic Bible study will
  • Quote biblical passages or explain them in their
    context in the Bible
  • Will not claim to be the only Catholic approach
    to the Bible

5
  • A good Catholic Bible study will
  • Never advocate for a single
  • understanding or theory of
  • biblical inspiration, which the
  • church has never definitively
  • settled

6
  • A good Catholic Bible study will
  • Make no definitive judgments about matters that
    the church leaves open. This includes the date
    and authorship of biblical books and translations
    or interpretations of specific passages of the
    Bible

7
  • A good Catholic Bible study will
  • Acknowledge the rare instances when the church
    has declared a given interpretation as the
    correct one, or has proscribed specific
    interpretations such as the passage on the
    brothers and sisters of Jesus (Mk 332), where
    the church teaches that they are not blood
    siblings of Jesus.

8
  • A good Catholic Bible study will
  • Avoid fundamentalist interpretations or improper
    literal or fanciful interpretations
  • Recognize the complex and dynamic relationship
    between the Old Testament and the New Testament

9
  • A good Catholic Bible study will
  • Will stay-on-track to cover the assigned
    material in the allotted time
  • Will inspire participants to read, study, and
    pray Holy Scripture every day

Francis Hook

The Church holds that the books of both the Old
and New Testaments in their entirety, with all
their parts, are sacred and canonical because
written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit,
they have God as their author and have been
handed on as such to the Church herself. (Dei
Verbum)
12
The Bible is
  • The Inerrant Word of God
  • Written by humans with the total inspiration of
    God

13
Senses of Scripture
  • Literal understanding the words used as the
    writers understood them in their original
    settings
  • Spiritual
  • Allegorical
  • Tropological
  • Anagogical

14
Interpretation Criteria
  • Unity of the whole Scripture
  • The living Tradition of the whole Church
  • Analogy of faith

15
Perspective
  • Unless we are living a sustained and disciplined
    life of prayer, we will never have the reverence,
    the profound humility, or the grace we need to
    see the Scriptures for what they really are.
