The Bible Timeline is Catholic Bible Study which gives you the full story of the Bible using a narrative approach.  This approach allows you to see the coherent story of salvation.  Each weekly session has recommended reading assignments, a group discussion, and a 45-minute, video-lecture by biblical scholar, Jeff Cavins.
