through examples such as The Unmoved Mover and The Grand Designer. After reading the Bible passages about the creation of the Earth, we came up with many different characteristics of God, some including good, omnipotent, creative, loving, eternal, and unique. One very important concept we learned was that “Abba” is another name for God, and means “father”. And, “Yahweh”, the name God revealed to Moses at Mount Sinai, means “I am.”  Another thing that we studied last semester were the four covenants between God and humans. First, the Covenant with Abraham, then the Covenant with Noah, then the Sinai Covenant, and finally, Jesus Christ: The New Covenant. All of these important topics in the first chapter led as an introduction to God the Father, and helped us understand the basic connections and relationships we have with God.Next, in the chapter Jesus Christ: Lord and Savior, we learned about Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and ascension.

The Bible is Jesus’ life and teachings on paper for all to learn from, which is very important for understanding the Catholic faith.
