                            the Bible Adult Studies

Art that is inspired by the Bible can provide a profound reflective experience that evokes deep feelings, insights, and understandings. Art engages us in ways that go beyond words, thereby enriching our study of the scriptures. As the saying goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words.# Indeed, art can enhance and add depth to our understanding of the scriptures and to our faith.
