Over the course of four years, you’ll encounter a majority of the Bible — and do so in tandem with the Seattle Pacific community as students, faculty, and staff focus on the same weekly Scripture in Chapel, community Bible studies, and other weekly worship events. During the 2014–15 academic year, Lectio readings cover Genesis–Exodus 19, the Gospel of Matthew, Romans, and selections from Israel’s story.

In conjunction with the Winter Quarter Lectio readings on Matthew, Professor of New Testament David Nienhuis will host an evening seminar for alumni, local church leaders, and other Lectio readers on Tuesday, January 6. Register at
