Reminder: Read or Listen to Lectio

This free online weekly reading program allows you to explore God's Word with the guidance of an outstanding biblical scholar who has a deeply personal Christian faith. You also have the option of "going deeper" in your study of each week's Scripture passage through links to other commentaries and resources. You can read the Lectio, listen to a podcast, or both. Over the course of four years, you'll encounter a majority of the Bible – and do so in tandem with SPU as students, faculty, and staff focus on the same weekly Scripture in Chapel, community Bible studies, and other worship events. The summer Lectio readings feature Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies Sara Koenig on “Old Testament Selections From Israel's Story." Sign up today. More
