Mr. Weaver: Connecting Scripture and Living It
Sharing insights from his study of scripture and his attempt to LIVE IT
I spent 7 years at St. Vincent, earned an MA in Religion + 43 credits. Taught in a public school for 35 years. I did not retire until after 55 years of teaching. I also taught World Religions, World Myth, NT, and Catholic-Orthodox Tradition.
I decided to try to share what I know about Scripture and the background. For example, Greek and Hebrew, Anthropology and mythology. You do not have to be Catholic to appreciate my writings about scripture.
Each week I have an intro which explains some back ground then I include copies of the readings, highlighting things others might not notice or know about. So I have ONE doc w some introductory background and ONE with the actual readings. So it will be easier to see how the themes of OT and NT are actually a continuum.
The Mass format is: OT - Psalm - Epistle - Gospel
and they have a unifying theme, but what is it? That is what I try to show.
I want to make a 'haute vulgarisation', that is, I want to share some HIGH scholarship and bring it down so common ordinary people can understand it. Vulgus in Latin means "common man". I will always distinguish between what is 'scholarly knowledge' and what is Catholic perspective.
In both cases, I hope I can further God's Work
