    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.

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.

Joseph

Informative and beneficial for my relationship with Joseph. His character (primarily his humility) is highlighted in hearing more of his story.

The Hidden King...Very Compelling

Dr. Brant Petri's The Hidden King: The Jewish Roots of St. Joseph is extremely impactful. I've been an RCIA catechist for over ten years and have used various sources to convey our Faith, this is a resource that I will definitely draw on in the future.  Dr. Petri's  presentation style taps into the ethos, logos, and pathos of our Catholic history, tradition, and scripture and makes our faith compelling, vivid and real.  This talk fills in just enough of the silence in scripture to illuminate St. Joseph so that we can all more deeply appreciate the role St. Joseph has in our salvation. Thank you Dr. Petri, for your love of our Faith and service to the Church.

Dr Pitre is amazing. The way he teaches makes it so easy to understand. He gives me answers to questions I never thought to ask. Without hesitation I will be buying more Bible studies that he has done.

Fantastic

This is a great talk on what Catholics believe about Mary. The book, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary is more detailed. I highly recommend both. As usual, Dr. Pitre does a great job!

The Jewish Roots of Holy Week

I liked “The Jewish Roots of Holy Week :The Seven Last Days of Jesus” very much and appreciate that you divided it into chapters so that I can use it during Lent next year. Your prices are so reasonable too! Thank you!

Absolutely Fabulous

Excellent lecture with terrific information. Always enjoy Dr Bergsma's teaching and style.
