Click here to watch a video about the Biblical Institute
The Biblical Institute of the Diocese of Joliet
is a 4-year program to study every book of the Bible.
We use one of the best Catholic Bible studies ever developed for learning Scripture in a systematic way, the Catholic Biblical School program.
Try the first two years
(Old Testament and New Testament Foundations)
and decide later whether to stay for Years 3 and 4
(the rest of the Bible).
The Biblical Institute is for everyone!
Some of our students serve their parishes as catechists, lectors,
or Bible study facilitators.
Many people join us with no Bible study background at all.
If you bring a commitment to learning and a desire
for deeper understanding of God’s word, we’ll give you
what you need to successfully participate in the program.
You’ll study the Bible as a whole and in its parts
from a Catholic point of view, with an experienced teacher,
and within a Catholic faith community.

Ss. Peter and Paul,
"BIDJ makes the Bible come alive. To hear and see the Bible in this way
is unlike anything I have ever done. It is truly the Bible made touchable."
