    Have you ever wondered: How did we get the Bible? Where does the Bible come from? And why are there different Bibles? In this primer for anyone interested in Bible study, Dr. Pitre takes you through a three-part study of the origins of the Old and New Testaments. Particular focus is given to the history of how the canon, the official list of books in the Bible, came to be, and the central role the Catholic Church played in the formation of the canon. Dr. Pitre also explores the reliability and authorship of the Gospels, and whether or not we can have confidence that the canon of Scripture is reliable. This fascinating series will answer questions such as:


    • Where did the Bible come from?
    • Why are there so many different versions of the Bible?
    • Why are those books in the Bible?
    • What was the Jewish Bible like at the time of Jesus?
    • Why are there seven less books in Protestant Bibles than in Catholic Bibles?
    • How do we know that the Gospels are reliable?
    • What are the Dead Sea Scrolls and the “Lost Gospels”?
    • How did Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformers change the Bible?
    • What about “Sola Scriptura” and belief in the “Bible Alone”?


    Whether you’re a beginner or a lifelong student of the Bible, you’re sure to gain new and exciting insights from this informative series. So, if you’re interested in learning about the hottest selling book in the history of mankind, then this Bible study on the Bible is for you!

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.

Origin of the Bible

Quality of information is very good. Quality of the presentation is extremely poor. Almost asked for a refund.

Great talk but tricky download

Talk was a must listen for anyone. Be careful not to hit download until on the device you want to download it to and have the proper app on that device because you don’t get a redue and it burns one of your three download opportunities.

Hello! We will send out new download links if you have trouble downloading so no worries there!

Wives do what

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!

Enthusiastically viewed

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.
