    Are marriage and the priesthood “opposites” of each other? Are they two opposing and exclusive ways to serve God? Or, are they somehow profoundly linked to one another?

    In this presentation given at the 2009 Word of God Conference, Dr. Bergsma, former Protestant pastor and now Professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, examines the passion story of the Gospel of John, showing the unexpected and surprising ways that John reveals Jesus as both priest and bridegroom at the Cross. Married couples and priests alike will benefit from this moving reflection on the way both sacraments—Matrimony and Holy Orders—participate in the self-sacrifice of the crucified Christ.

The Crucifixion: A Marital Act, A Priestly Act

Found it very interesting but would have loved more depth and cultural context for the times that texts were written. Otherwise I enjoyed listening to it. Wish it was a longer study so we could hear more content on this very crucial topic.

I have not watched my DVDs nor listened to my CDs…been busy! But I loved the Brant Petri series I perched a month or so ago and also The Fourth Cup. I lead a Discipling group and I like to vary the material I use. You also replaced a DVD that skipped for me. Thanks for that prompt return!

Enjoyed Bergsma as always

Theologically rich and beautiful!

This talk was not a great biblical resource, but a fountain of grace during the Triduum. It's an amazing theological talk, but also beautiful. Can't recommend enough!

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.
