    Why is there so much killing in the Old Testament? Why does Moses pronounce such harsh laws? How can a good God send a flood on the earth and command the Israelites to wipe out the inhabitants of Canaan?

    These are some of the hardest questions people ask about the Bible, but they aren’t new. The ancient rabbis and Church Fathers wrestled with them millennia ago. In this powerful talk, Dr. Bergsma marshals all the resources of Christian theology and contemporary scholarship to address:

    • Why do some biblical heroes seem to “get away with” some atrocious actions?
    • Why are certain biblical stories so unedifying?
    • Why do some laws of Moses permit unjust actions, and have harsh penalties?
    • Why did God command Israel to put the Canaanites to death?

    Dr. Bergsma is convinced that only by grappling with the hard questions face-to-face do we come to a deeper understanding of the nature of God and of the reality he created.

Understanding the Old Testaments Dark Passages

Dr. J. Bergsma tackles the strange and dark passages that when most people read them they just say what? Dr. Bergsma does a decent job of helping his audience to see the passages in a new light.

Feedback to The Dark Passages of the Old Testament

I think the Q&A session is a bit long. It is more valuable to have more content from the speaker.

Loved it

I learn so much from Dr Pitre in general. I own a few of his books & have listened to his talks on YouTube & I appreciate the way he teaches. I decided to purchase this study (in addition to another one for Advent, with Mary)seeing as we're approaching Advent 2021 & I'm so glad I did. It didn't disappoint. I'm back on here purchasing 4 more! I appreciate his style & method of explaining things.

Nothing Dead here. Interesting and insightful here.

I thought the CD was great. It offered me much to think about and ponder about our Lord while he was on this earth.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Advent

Brilliant, challenging, comprehensive, uplifting!

Case for Jesus

This was the first book I bought and read of Dr. Pitre’s. I found it really accessible. It was easy to follow and well written. This introduction to Dr. Pitre and his skill at communicating his knowledge in a way that is easy to follow has led me to continue to study with more of his works.

Jesus and the End Times

With all the events happening in the world today, I enjoyed and received peace of mind hearing the Catholic view of the end times.
