On Scripture Weekly Resources, An On Scripture Feature by Date

ON Scripture – The Bible is a unique weekly Biblical commentary from Odyssey Networks that features scripture with a current events spin.

The goal of ON Scripture is to make scriptural analysis accessible to everyone, not just preachers or religious scholars. Each week, ON Scripture writers take the readings from the Christian lectionary and reflect on them through the lens of what has been happening in the news. Through this current events-based analysis, the text becomes relevant to a diverse audience of people of all faiths (as well as non-believers) who are interested in learning about the Bible and how it can connect with their daily lives.

ON Scripture – The Bible is posted on Mondays on this page as well as at OdysseyNetworks.orgHuffington Post Religion, and Day1.org. It is supported by a generous grant from the Lilly Endowment. Visit the ON Scripture – The Bible website
