    To many American Christians, the priesthood and the Sacrament of Holy Orders is just another of the many "unbiblical" aspects of Roman Catholicism. The Catholic Church, the argument goes, has corrupted the true equality of Christians, who ought to share the "Priesthood of All Believers."

    How should Catholics respond? In this series of talks, Dr. Bergsma traces the theme of priesthood from Genesis to the Gospels, explaining along the way the biblical roles of the priest, the difference between the common and ministerial priesthoods, and the proper understanding of the phrase, "Priesthood of All Believers."

Are Priests Biblical?

Love Dr Bergsma's studies!


I thought the talk was good, but it seemed to be missing other parts? Are there additional segments to this series? Bergsma makes a good case and shows how the catholic position of the priesthood is intertwined in scripture. I did feel the talk lacked in depth to explain how the priesthood still plays an important role in our faith, but this could also be due to the length of the talk.

Hi Gerald, Thank you for your review. If you have 3 CDs then you have everything. As you noted, it is always difficult to cover everything in a short amount of time.

I always took the priesthood for granted. This set will not only show you how extremely Biblical the Catholic priesthood is, you will also have your mind blown!
