A Taylor Swift Bible study is connecting students at Faith Lutheran Middle & High School in Las Vegas. A group of nearly two dozen students meets every Tuesday before school for “Tuesdays with Taylor,” a Bible study that relates Scripture passages to the famous pop star’s lyrics.
“We take Taylor Swift song lyrics and we connect them to Bible verses and then we just talk about how they connect. And so, I really like this club because we get connections, we get peace, and we get common ‘likings,’” student Michael Vardanyan told Heidi Schmidt with KCTV News.
Taylor Swift Bible Study Is Based on Eras Tour
Taylor Swift is a recording artist and entrepreneur whose net worth exceeded $1 billion in October. She won album of the year at the Grammy Awards Sunday and is the only artist to have won the award four times. Swift also won a Grammy for best pop vocal album, taking her total Grammy wins to 14.
Swift is known for her relationships as well as for her music, and many people are enjoying obsessing over her current romance with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. The Chiefs will face off against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas at the Super Bowl this Sunday.
“I was talking with a group of students about Taylor Swift,” said Becky Chaplin, the director of family ministry at Faith Community Lutheran Church in Las Vegas. “I threw out the idea we could start a Bible study based on songs by Taylor Swift.”
Swift’s Eras Tour, which began in March 2023 and features a runtime upwards of three hours, currently extends through December 2024. The tour is a nod to the singer’s 10 albums, and Chaplin thought that a Taylor Swift Bible study fit well with a 10-month school year.
A Bible study printout titled “Lover Era: Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince,” features snippets of lyrics from that particular single, along with Bible verses for each snippet.
For example, “and the Heartbreak Prince” appears above a quote from Isaiah 9:6, which says, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
