T3 Teen Bible Study

T3: The Teen Timeline

The Teen Timeline —or T3— is the teen version of the revolutionary Great Adventure Bible Timeline learning system that hundreds of thousands of Catholic adults have used to learn the Bible. Dynamic teen presenter Mark Hart makes the Bible come alive for Catholic teens by unpacking God’s Word in a way they can relate to. T3 teaches teens the Bible by showing them the “big picture” of salvation history. When young students of the Bible first understand the “story,” they are eager to learn more. The net result: teens begin to wrap their minds and hearts around the Scriptures. They come to see the Bible as a relevant part of their lives. In this 8-part DVD series Mark Hart provides an engaging overview of salvation history, giving teens “the big picture” of the Bible in a way they can relate to and understand.

T3 Revelation: The Lion and the Lamb

The book of Revelation has captured the interest of modern adults and teens alike. With all that has been written and sensationalized in recent novels and films, this has become the most talked about (and most misunderstood) book in Sacred Scripture. But what exactly does our Church teach about this seemingly “cryptic” book of the Bible and how in the world do we begin to break open something so complex with our Catholic teenagers? T3 Revelation: The Lion and the Lamb unpacks the myths about Revelation, the end times, the mark of the beast, and so much more. T3 Revelation gives your teens an invaluable foundation for understanding the book of Revelation, while pointing out its modern significance, practical application, and daily relevance to a teenager’s life. In each of the four lessons, Mark skillfully unpacks the book’s main points and key chapters, while continually referring to the wisdom offered by our Catholic faith. In this 4-part DVD series Mark Hart provides comprehensive teaching and commentary on the Book of Revelation. Teens will learn foundations for understanding Revelation, while discover its timeless significance and daily relevance.

Theology of the Body for Teens

A chastity program needs to extend beyond teaching sexual morality. Yes, the Theology of the Body speaks to the purpose of love and sexuality, but also much more, including the most fundamental question of all:  what is the meaning of life? With engaging stories, real-life scenarios, activities, and prayers, TOB for Teens connects the two hottest topics on the planet—God and sex— unlike any other chastity program in the church today. Teens are already surrounded with messages, images, and peer discussion concerning these topics. It is nearly impossible to escape them in today’s culture so it is vital to be there to offer them the truth in a positive and relevant way.

Teens and pre-teens are in a confusing time of quest and discovery, especially with issues concerning their bodies, their sexuality, their future and how they relate to others.  After seven years and tens of thousands of students having gone through the Theology of the Body for Teens chastity programs, our feedback confirms that these issues are on their minds more than anything else.  They do have questions. They may never voice them, but they want guidance. More than that, they crave it even if they don’t actively articulate it. The Theology of the Body for Teens chastity programs use Blessed Pope John Paul II’s vision for love and life to answer the tough questions kids are asking about God, sex, and the meaning of life.
