    If there’s any part of the Bible that Catholics are familiar with, it’s the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. According to Vatican II, “the fourfold Gospel” is nothing less than “the foundation of our faith” (Dei Verbum 19).

    However, in modern times, there is no part of the Bible that has been more attacked and subjected to criticism than the four Gospels. Who wrote the Gospels? Are they really anonymous? Do they tell us the truth about Jesus? Are they fact or fiction?

    In this foundational Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre takes you on a guided tour of the Four Gospels. In Part 1 of the series, he answers historical questions about the origins of the Gospels, such as:

    • Who wrote the Gospels? Are they really anonymous?
    • When were the Gospels written?
    • What did the Church Fathers believe?
    • What do modern scholars believe? Why?

    In Part 2, Dr. Pitre then turns to the portraits of Jesus that each of the four Gospels gives us. He takes you through the distinctive picture given by each Evangelist:

    Matthew
    • The Messiah
    • The Rabbi
    • The New Moses

    Mark
    • The Miracle Worker
    • The Exorcist
    • The Suffering Son of Man

    Luke
    • The Son of Mary
    • The Savior
    • The New Adam

    John
    • The Son of God
    • The New Temple
    • The Bridegroom

  •      
  • Yotpo

I thouht that it would show pictures or illustrations while the Bible teacher takses classes as Bishop Barron does. Simply looking at the teacher and listening to him is not meant for my students who are super seniors from 80 to 100 years old. The classes are good for me , but not meant for them. Fr. Tony

On line order from Catholic Production

My CD’s arrived in great shape. The order arrived to me about five days after ordering. I’m very satisfied with the service.
I have started listening to the CD calle, The Tongue Is A Fire. It is making me to think more careful on what comes out of my mouth. Definitely worth listening to routinely.
