The Body and Blood of Christ: The Mass Readings Explained Excerpt

by Brant Pitre June 13, 2017 0 Comments



In this video taken from the series, The Mass Readings Explained, Dr. Brant Pitre emphasizes the realism of Jesus' words in John 6 of his flesh being true food and his blood being true drink. With the background of the Manna in the desert to clarify his meaning, Jesus says that just as his fellow Jews' ancestors had to eat the manna in the desert in during the exodus to reach the earthly promised land (though they would eventually die), to reach the heavenly promised land and never die, we, too, must eat the heavenly manna, which is his flesh.

Helpful to understanding.

Life after Death, a Bible study on the 7 last things

This study could also be titled: the 7 most important things to know in our earthly life, as what happens when we die, affects how we live today.
Brant Pitre is one of the most outstanding teachers of Scripture.
He takes a complex topic, breaks it up into bite size chucks, articulates it in a way that is comprehensible, referencing Scripture.
He covers so much ground in a limited time frame, never a dull moment.
He has a good sense of humor too.
In this study, using Scripture, he helps us understand the many questions we ask about what happens when we die.
It is worth every cent
Michael is just so helpful in making sure, we get to access the material correctly.

This is so good that I bought two more to give as gifts!

Wonderful

This is a beautiful and moving study of the Triduum, my favorite time of the year. It’s also my first presentation from Dr. Bergsma, but it definitely won’t be my last.
