Based on Dr. Pitre's book Jesus the Bridegroom: The Greatest Love Story Ever Told.
Have you ever been asked the question: “Do You Have a Personal Relationship with Jesus Christ?” The answer for every Christ should be 'Yes'! However, it is interesting that the Bible never uses the expression “personal relationship” to describe how Christ relates to the Church. Instead, Scripture describes the relationship between Jesus and the Church as the love of a “Bridegroom” for his “Bride” (John 3:28; Ephesians 5:32). Why? How can Jesus be "the Bridegroom" when he had no wife?
In this eye-opening lecture, Dr. Pitre unveils the love of Christ in his Passion and the sacraments. In this talk, you will learn about topics such as:
• The Bridegroom God of the Old Testament
• John the Baptist, the “Best Man” of Jesus
• The First Miracle of Jesus: Water into Wine at a Wedding
• The Wedding Banquet of the Last Supper
• The Parallels between the Crucifixion and an Ancient Jewish Wedding
• Why Jesus' Side was Pierced on the Cross
• Why There Will Be No Marriage in the Resurrection
• The Biblical Roots of Virginity and Celibacy
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about what it really means to have a “personal relationship” with Jesus Christ as Lord, Savior, and divine Bridegroom—then this is the Bible study for you.
What an amazing talk by Dr Brant Pitre! I have found this talk so life-giving to me! This is profound in its depth, yet so simple to understand. I have it in my car and listen to it regularly! Can't recommend this highly enough to any Christian!!
Where were you thirty years ago! The information on my Catholic faith is vast. If I knew then what I know now my life would look very different. I can’t get enough. Thank you so much and keep them coming.
Jesus the Bridegroom
I had listened to the CD from Lighthouse Catholic Media many months ago. In fact, I had listened to it at least five times, but the impact of the DVD was like a revelation! I think that there was more content in the DVD. I can assure you that I will recommend it to everyone I meet.
