OCABS

OCABS is the Orthodox Center for the Advancement of Biblical Studies. What a wealth of information can be found there!

They state on their site:

"As Fr. John Breck points out in his book, Scripture in Tradition, historically, the Orthodox tradition has possessed a wealth of biblical resources in the form of biblical homilies. Yet where is one to find such resources today? Our early church fathers, who dedicated their whole lives to the study, teaching, and preaching of Scripture, would be scandalized by the contemporary lack of interest in Biblical Studies!

The Orthodox Center for the Advancement of Biblical Studies was established to educate, inspire and challenge the faithful to recognize the centrality of sound biblical interpretation for life in Christ. The last 50 years have seen a wonderful renewal in the areas of liturgy, music, iconography, patristics, and monasticism. OCABS is part of a growing community of faithful in the Orthodox Church who are embracing the same renewal in the development of serious Scriptural studies and preaching."

Enhance your study of the Orthodox faith by visiting this awesome site!
