All Christians believe that Jesus fulfilled the prophecies of the Old Testament in himself. Yet one of the most frequent prophecies in the Bible is that God would one day bring the “lost ten tribes” of Israel back home to the promised land. So how was this accomplished? Are the ten tribes still lost, or did Jesus fulfill this prophecy too?
In this Bible study given at the 2010 Word of God Conference, Dr. Pitre takes something very familiar to Christians—the Last Supper—and ties it to something very mysterious—the return of the Lost Tribes of Israel. In this set, Dr. Pitre will answer questions such as:
• How were the Ten Tribes of Israel “lost”? Where did they go?
• Where do the biblical prophets foretell the return of the lost tribes?
• Are Christian fundamentalists right to expect that Jesus will only gather the lost tribes at the Rapture?
• Why did Jesus choose Twelve disciples? And why did he tell them they would “sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel,” when only two tribes were left?
• How were Jesus’ feedings of the 5,000 and 4,000 tied to the return of the lost tribes?
• How is the Last Supper the key to Jesus’ fulfillment of this prophecy?
According to Vatican I, one of the main motives of credibility for believing in Christianity is the fulfillment of prophecy. Yet many Christians have no idea how Jesus fulfilled the Jewish hope for the ingathering of the lost tribes. In this Bible study, you will learn how every Mass fulfills the oracles of the Old Testament. As Jesus says, “When I am lifted up, I will gather all men to myself” (John 12:32).
This is a great talk that cleared up for me a concept in the Bible that I had always glossed over before. I now realize how essential to Jesus' message the end of the Exile of the Lost Tribes and the ingathering of the Gentiles are.
Now passages I once glossed over without understanding leap out at me in my reading.
As with all talks from Catholic Productions they seem to open doors that I would never have opened. I am seeing the bible as if for the first time.
Dr. pitre never disappoints, even when I think I have heard it all bedore. And the quality of your products remain high quality. Thanks guus! Can’t wait to purchase a Blue Ray dvd!
I found this to be one of the most enlightening teachings that I have bought from Catholic Productions. It helps understand the role of the Mass in the salvation of all mankind, and also how some of the critical prophecies in the old testament are being fulfilled through Christ. It discusses Isaiah 25, which is a very important prophecy that all catholic should know, and also some other verses from the book of Ezekiel and from the new testament. Its discussion of that verse in Matthew 8:11 is so enlightening and really helps to interpret the prophecies of the old testament.
Also, if you want to understand the flaws of the protestant approach known as dispensationalism, this is the best teaching that I have found to clarify it.
In summary, this lecture is a must, and considering the price I cannot think of a better value for your money.
