AFF Study – Fulfilled, Part Two

Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism (Part Two)

NOTE: THIS IS A STAND-ALONE STUDY. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TAKE PART 1 TO PARTICIPATE IN PART 2

by Sonja Corbitt

Have you ever been unable to explain why Catholics believe what they do? Have you ever wondered why the Old Testament sounds so different from the New Testament? God began building a plan and laying a foundation for the beautiful traditions of the Catholic Faith in the Old Testament. It was fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament. Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism is an apologetic approach to sharing the Catholic Faith using the Old Testament tabernacle as a blueprint for God’s plan. While designed as a faith sharing Bible study, participants will also gain an apologetic understanding of some of the most questioned Catholic teachings. Fulfilled will reignite your love of scripture and help you share and defend the Catholic faith with the Word of God.

This program will help participants:
>>Explain how Jesus fulfills the Old Testament
>>Become equipped to share their faith concisely
>>Acquire a thorough knowledge of the tabernacle’s design, facilities, and function as the skeleton for true faith
>>Learn how to answer incomplete, and non-Catholic interpretations of the Bible
>>Examine their own faith and grow deeper in their relationship with Christ

Part Two focuses on the elements found in the inner sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the Magisterium, the Eucharist, incense, Mary, and more. Part One focuses on the elements found in the outer sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the liturgical calendar, the priesthood, purgatory, baptism, and more.
