    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!

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.

Great and fantastic studies!
