    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!

Worth every minute

I have now listened to Dr Bergsma's CD series on the Dead Sea Scrolls several times, and I get more out of it each time I listen. It has been a wonderful journey of faith into world of Jewish beliefs in the time of Jesus. I have recommended it to many others in my parish. There are more than 18 hours of audio, and it is worth every minute of your time.

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.

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.

Dr Pitre is amazing. The way he teaches makes it so easy to understand. He gives me answers to questions I never thought to ask. Without hesitation I will be buying more Bible studies that he has done.

Fantastic

This is a great talk on what Catholics believe about Mary. The book, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary is more detailed. I highly recommend both. As usual, Dr. Pitre does a great job!

The Jewish Roots of Holy Week

I liked “The Jewish Roots of Holy Week :The Seven Last Days of Jesus” very much and appreciate that you divided it into chapters so that I can use it during Lent next year. Your prices are so reasonable too! Thank you!

Absolutely Fabulous

Excellent lecture with terrific information. Always enjoy Dr Bergsma's teaching and style.
