Lectio: Latin for “reading”
This free online weekly reading program allows you to explore God’s Word, beginning in Genesis, with the guidance of an outstanding biblical scholar who has a deeply personal Christian faith.
You can read the Lectio, listen to a podcast, or both.
Over the course of four years, you’ll encounter a majority of the Bible – and do so in tandem with the Seattle Pacific community as students, faculty, and staff focus on the same weekly Scripture in Chapel, community Bible studies, and other weekly worship events.
