    What is your image of St. Joseph? A poor, humble carpenter, or the hidden King of the Jews? An elderly widower, or a man in his prime, the chaste spouse of Mary? The mere legal guardian of the child Jesus, or the earthly shadow of the heavenly Father?

    In this series, Dr. Brant Pitre takes the popular figure of Saint Joseph and open up the mysteries of his hidden identity, his relationship with Mary, and his role as the earthly foster-father of Jesus. In it, you will learn about:

    • How Joseph was the Hidden King of the Jews
    • Why Joseph was a threat to the Fake King Herod
    • Why Herod Murdered his own Wife, three Sons, and the Infants in Bethlehem
    • Why Joseph Accepted of Mary’s Jewish Vow of Virginity
    • How Joseph Hid the Virgin Birth from Satan
    • Joseph’s Relation to the “Brothers” of Jesus
    • Apocryphal Legend of the Elderly Joseph
    • The Biblical Age of Saint Joseph
    • The Persecution of Joseph’s Family
    • How Joseph is the earthly Shadow of Jesus’ heavenly Father

    Many books on Saint Joseph focus on apocryphal legends and private revelations. In this Bible Study, Dr. Pitre focuses on what we can learn about Saint Joseph from the Bible, ancient Jewish and Roman history, and the living Tradition of the Church. As you will discover, although Joseph is silent in pages of the New Testament, when looked at through ancient Jewish eyes, he stands with Jesus and Mary at the very center of salvation history.

    So, if you already have a devotion to Joseph, or if you would like to deepen your relationship with him, or if you just want to understand what the Bible really teaches about the man who was closest to Jesus, then this Bible Study is for you.

I bought this to show after Wednesday’s Mass in our parish hall to a group of about 15 seniors. We did one dvd a week, I printed out the sections of the outline for that disc for each attendee. I have a permanent audience now and have purchased several more that have been eagerly received. We are learning so much of the ancient origins of our faith that until this point were mostly in the shadows. Dr Pitri validates our long held beliefs with his biblical background of the role St Jiseph played in the lives of Jesus and Mary.

We are sharing with a small bible study.
I think you will have more subscribers from this.
It is so well presented and it just adds so much to our study and it works so well with the consecration of st Joseph with father Connely
Too funny that we are going on a pilgrimage with a group from New Orleans 206 tours Greg Terrebonne . We are the only Canadians but so excited and so busy studying and you help so much with the catholic productions.

Great talk!

Enjoyed it. The only thing I missed was a reflection on the assumption of Joseph, body and soul into heaven, a teaching favoured by SS Francis de Sales and Pope John XXIII.

Pitre never disappoints. His knowledge is unsurpassed by anyone

Insightful Course.

Good insights that challenged my view of life after death in Catholic teaching.

Dr. Pitre’s Best Book Yet

The content was clear, organized and so well done! You can read it all in one sitting from cover to cover OR in sections! I am so grateful for Dr. Pitre. A must read!

Brant Pitre for the win

I needed background on the development of the canon of Scripture as part of a lecture. Honestly, Brant Pitre is my current theology crush. With so much knowledge to share and a great sense of humor, he wins the day again for me.
