Published since 2002, "Verbum Vitae" is a quarterly issued by the Institute of Biblical Studies of the Faculty of Theology, The John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Poland. The first and third fascicles of each issue of the journal include scholarly articles dedicated to a specific biblical theme and presented in three sections: (I) Old Testament, (II) New Testament, and (III) Patristics and the Life of the Church. The final "Life of the Church" perspective tries to broaden out each issue's given topic into its multiple connections and implications, mostly dogmatic, moral, pastoral, liturgical, or sociological. The second and fourth fascicles of the issue always consist of various theological articles, which do not deal with the main topic (specific biblical theme) of the first and third fascicles. Because of the journal's interdisciplinary character, it seeks to include among the contributors not only biblical scholars but also theologians of various specializations.
