Orthodox Center for the Advancement of Biblical Studies Established

The Orthodox Center for the Advancement of Biblical Studies began as an informal gathering of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology and St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary alumni in 1999 to pursue advanced biblical studies through annual meetings. The members recognized that additional resources were necessary to augment their seminary education and enhance their various ministries in the Orthodox Church. With this in mind, a pan-Orthodox non-profit organization was established to develop, promote, and publish research in the areas of biblical studies, homiletics and religious education in the Orthodox Christian Faith.

The work of OCABS includes:

  • Promoting the awareness of the centrality of the Gospel in the Christian life.
  • Providing resources for those who teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the parish level.
  • Conducting seminars in the area of advanced biblical studies.
  • Developing a foundation to provide material support for those pursuing advanced degrees and for special research and publishing projects.

Please check the OCABS website at www.ocabs.org for on-line resources and information about upcoming seminars on Orthodox scriptural studies and biblical languages.

For additional information, please contact Fr. Timothy Lowe, 203-237-4539 or email him: tsdlowe@cox.net
