New City vs Heidelberg Catechism

I’ve just completed filming videos for each session (Lord’s Day) of the Heidelberg Catechism – all available on the Understand the Bible website.

If you’re curious as to how it compares to the New City Catechism, I’ve just written up my thoughts on how they differ. Here’s the beginning:

I have just uploaded the final part of the Heidelberg Catechism series. That means that all three parts – onetwo and three – are now available! 52 sessions all done and dusted. (OK, you got me, there are actually 51 because I skipped one session about oaths which I thought was less relevant to the 21st century, but still). Over the last few months, as I’ve been recording this, I’ve found it a real joy to go through the catechism. I thought, seeing as I’ve already worked my way through the New City Catechism (you can see the course here), it might be worth doing a head to head comparison – the Heidelberg vs New City Catechism.

In summary, over the past few months I’ve enjoyed doing the Heidelberg videos more than I did the New City Catechism ones. Here are a few points where I prefer the Heidelberg to the New City Catechism.
