What Does the Bible
This website contains a variety of materials, mostly related to biblical and liturgical studies,
intended for scholars, teachers, students, pastors, believers, seekers, and others.
Many pages contain my own writings and photos,
some pages were created by my students, and some have links to other websites.
Although I am a Roman Catholic priest and have taught mostly in Catholic institutions,
I hope these materials are academically reliable and pastorally adaptable,
so they can be useful for many other Christians and non-Christians as well.
Please feel free to use any of my own materials for your own study or teaching purposes,
subject to the conditions listed on my copyright page.
I hope you enjoy and benefit from these pages!
