    Christians today have lots of different opinions about what "worship" should look like. Some think it should be all preaching, others think it should be 'entertaining', still others think it's all about the music. But what does the Bible say about worship? And why do Catholics do what they do at Mass? Why all the standing, sitting, kneeling, and repetition? Where does it all come from?

    In this important series, Dr. Brant Pitre takes you on a scriptural tour of topics such as:

    The Shape of Worship: Who determines how we worship? God or us? 
    The Meaning of Sacrifice: Why did God demand animal sacrifice in the Old Testament? What was the meaning of blood sacrifice? Does it play any role in Christian worship today? 
    The Tabernacle of Moses:  What did worship look like in the Old Testament? How does it parallel the Mass today?
    The Book of Revelation:  What does worship look like in Heaven? How does Revelation reveal the Mass?
    The Jewish Passover: What was Passover worship like at the time of Jesus? Why was it so important, and how does it parallel Catholic worship today?
    The Last Supper and the Death of Christ: Why did Jesus choose to die during the Passover? How did his death fulfill the Jewish sacrifices in the Temple?
    The Biblical Roots of the Mass: How does the Bible unlock the mysteries behind the words and actions in the Mass?

    Many Catholics know what to do at Mass, but not why we do it. And many non-Catholics are confused by the rituals and words of the Mass. Some even think that most of the Mass is just 'made up'--a tradition of men. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you've ever wondered about whether or not the Mass is biblical, then look no further: Why We Worship is the perfect resource for parishes, RCIA programs, Bible studies--for anyone who wants to understand the Bible really says about the mystery and meaning of worship.

Excellent series

If you ever wanted to know more about why we worship the way we do, how to get more at Mass then this study is for you . Dr Pitre is such a great teacher and even though we have many of his presentations, we always find him captivating and have learnt so much from him. Thank your Catholic Productions for all that you do .

Why We Worship dvd Dec 2020 review

This was so cool! Dr Pitre is very engaging and easy to listen too... His energy and passion gets us- as viewers/listeners- into the Scriptures as if we were one of the Disciples and were THERE in the Temple sacrificing the lamb with Peter & John / or in the upper Room or in the Garden of Gethsemane ... so vivid when clarifying the Hebrew terms and the Greek to properly frame the English for the culture of two thousand years ago.

Why We Confess

BlueRay poor production. Speaker face went out of focus several times, last few minutes the screen goes dark while speaker is still speaking. Brant was great. I will buy only standard DVD in the future.

Jesus and the end times.

Our Bible Study group went through Jeff Cavins production. It was great also. I haven't finished all 11 discs yet, but plan to do so any day now. What I did listen to is exceptional indeed and I expect the remain to be likewise. Thank you Brant for all your lessons.

Lesson for all Bible studies

The talk by Dr Pitre helped me to better understand the remarks about the Jews returning to the Promised Land. He tells how it happens.

the passover

great teachings learnt so much from Brandt in my time of listening to him !

On the road to Emmaus

Excellent! We did it to end our six weeks of DVDs on Holy Thursday. We had used your other tapes on the roots of the Eucharist, the 4th cup and the passion week beginning on Palm Sunday, a set of two. It worked out very well! Thanks for putting these together and my Bible group really loves to see And learn from the DVDs that you do when we gather

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!
