What does mercy mean, anyway? Letting people off the hook? Having lower standards? Accepting shoddy work? Having pity on the destitute? Though we often speak of "mercy," there is great confusion about what exactly it is, and how we should practice it.
In this two-talk series, Dr. Bergsma delves into the concept and words for mercy in the Old and New Testaments, showing that "mercy" in the Bible is a much richer reality than we realized. Along the way, we discover the close connections between mercy, the Psalms, the Mass, the Eucharist, and almsgiving. Biblical mercy always draws us closer into the family of God!
We all need mercy. This study will help you understand how the concept of mercy is everywhere in the Bible, and yet, it is developed and fulfilled in Christ and in the Sacraments. Highly recommended!
This is the first title by Dr. Bergsma that I have listened to and I really love it. He explains beautifully, knows so much, plus he can be very funny!! I am really enjoying his knowledge.
