    The Dead Sea Scrolls have been called the greatest archeological find of the twentieth century. Yet, controversy and confusion continue to swirl around these ancient writings. Did the Vatican suppress their publication? Do they mention Jesus? Are New Testament texts found among them? Do they undermine the Christian faith? Dr. Bergsma answers these questions, and many others in this lecture series on the Scrolls such as:

    • When were the Scrolls written, and by whom?
    • Were the Scrolls written by Jewish monks of the "Essene" order?
    • Was John the Baptist a member of the Scrolls community?
    • What light do the Scrolls shed on Jesus and the Last Supper?
    • Why are the Scrolls important for understanding St. Paul and Romans?
    • What relationship is there between the 12 Tribes of Israel and the Qumran Community of the Scrolls?

    Dr. Bergsma demonstrates how the Dead Sea Scrolls enable us to understand the Biblical and Jewish background of the Catholic faith like never before!

The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Jewish Roots of the Church

I am blown away. I never realized just how much the Essenes were a preparation for the Messianic community.The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Jewish roots of the church are clearer now.

Dead Sea Scroll 1947

This study by Prof. John Bergsma not only confirmed the Catholic Church as the one true Church established by Christ, but also highlighted Her as THE fulfillment of the Jewish promises and expectations. Thus, Catholicism is closer to the religion of ancient Israel than modern day Judaism is. Thank you again Prof. Bergsma for your ministry.

Excellent Bible Study

Dr Bergsma is such a wonderful and talented theologian. This is an in-depth study and every Catholic needs this knowledge as there is so much mis-information out there about the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Loved it

I learn so much from Dr Pitre in general. I own a few of his books & have listened to his talks on YouTube & I appreciate the way he teaches. I decided to purchase this study (in addition to another one for Advent, with Mary)seeing as we're approaching Advent 2021 & I'm so glad I did. It didn't disappoint. I'm back on here purchasing 4 more! I appreciate his style & method of explaining things.

Nothing Dead here. Interesting and insightful here.

I thought the CD was great. It offered me much to think about and ponder about our Lord while he was on this earth.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Advent

Brilliant, challenging, comprehensive, uplifting!

Case for Jesus

This was the first book I bought and read of Dr. Pitre’s. I found it really accessible. It was easy to follow and well written. This introduction to Dr. Pitre and his skill at communicating his knowledge in a way that is easy to follow has led me to continue to study with more of his works.

Jesus and the End Times

With all the events happening in the world today, I enjoyed and received peace of mind hearing the Catholic view of the end times.
