CP 191

Format

  • 1 hour 14 min. (1 CD / MP3)

    Do you ever get bored with the genealogies in the Bible?

    Do you ever wonder why we have to bother reading them in Mass?

    After this talk by Dr. Bergsma, you'll never sleep through the genealogy of Jesus again! St. Matthew has packed this list of ancestors with insights, apologetics, and even humor that most readers miss.

    Continuing into the infancy narratives of Matthew 1-2, Dr. Bergsma reveals how Jesus draws together and fulfills three great promises of the Old Testament: the Seed of the Woman, the Seed of Abraham, and the Seed of David.

It was an eye opener! Jim and I listened to it while on the road and I would like to listen again when I'm at home with no distractions. We really found it informative.

The Genesis of Jesus

It amazes me how I continue to learn and embrace my Catholic Faith. This is a great CD. This is my 2nd (same) CD I purchased. My daughter was speaking to a friend of hers who had questions about Our Catholic Faith and I bought a set for her to give to her friend. I know he will appreciate this. By the way the first set I purchased when Dr. Bersgma came to San Antonio, Texas.
