Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls (Bergsma)

You will find this to be an insightful comparison and contrast of an almost unknown Jewish sect and early Christians as they parallel each other in time. Dr Bergsma outlines that, while one faded, the other grew into the Roman Catholicism we know today. In reading Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls, I gained a better understanding of the time and temperment of this earlier time. I wish I could have read this book 40 years ago.

Hooray, my books arrived today!

Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Psalm Basics by Dr Bergsma will be my preferred reading this NZ summer, as the books have just arrived after their long circuitous tour. I can’t wait to get started!


  • John Bergsma presents a major new work on the Dead Sea Scrolls by showing how the mysterious ancient writings reveal more fully the Jewish roots of Christianity.

    From award-winning scholar John Bergsma comes an illuminating book that reveals new insights on the Essenes, a radical Jewish community predating Christianity, whose existence, beliefs, and practices are often overlooked in the annals of history. Bergsma reveals how this Jewish sect directly influenced the beliefs, sacraments, and practices of early Christianity and offers new information on how Christians lived their lives, worshipped, and eventually went on to influence the Roman Empire and Western civilization. Looking to Hebrew scripture and Jewish tradition, Bergsma helps to further explain how a simple Jewish peasant could go on to inspire a religion and a philosophy that still resonates 2,000 years later.

    In this enriching and exciting exploration, Bergsma demonstrates how the Dead Sea Scrolls—the world’s greatest modern archaeological discovery—can shed light on the Church as a sacred society that offered hope, redemption, and salvation to its member. Ultimately, these mysterious writings are a time machine that can transport us back to the ancient world, deepen our appreciation of Scripture, and strengthen our understanding of the Christian faith.

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.

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.
