Make sure of the gas supply by lighting a burner and letting it run on high a couple of minutes. If gas is o.k., then it sounds like a thermocouple problem in the oven. Fairly easy and simple fix. See if you can find a manual, online or paper that has a parts breakdown. We might can walk you through it here, let us know.

I did bleed the line by turning the burner on the stove top. I usually do that as soon as i set up.

Have you tried holding the knob in until the pilot light lights? When I light the oven, I push in the knob and hold it until pilot light lights and then I turn knob to the desired temperature.

Lighting procedure for most - hold knob in while trying to light the pilot light. After the pilot is lit, continue holding the knod for as long as 30 seconds after the pilot lights, (this is to get the thermocouple warm). After this time, you should be able to release the button and the pilot stay lit. If it goes out, chances are the thermocouple is bad. If it stays lit, then you can set the control to the desired temp, or just turn it to pilot only and be ready for when you do need it.
