    The book of Genesis may well be the most exciting and mysterious book in the Bible. For Jews of Jesus’ day the most important part of the Bible was none other than the Five Books of Moses (a.k.a. the Pentateuch: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). For thousands of years, these five books laid the foundations of Jewish and Christian belief about God, creation, man, Adam and Eve, Original Sin, the Flood, Moses and the Exodus, the Tabernacle, the Law, and on and on.

    In modern times, however, no book of the Bible has been more attacked or more misunderstood than the book of Genesis. There is also no other part of the Bible about which people have tougher questions than the Five Books of the Pentateuch. In this long-awaited full-length Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre takes you on a guided tour through Genesis and the books of Moses. After years of research and teaching the Pentateuch, in this electrifying new series, Dr. Pitre answers common questions such as:

    • Did Moses write the Pentateuch? What does the Catholic Church teach?
    • What about the theory of multiple authors “J, E, D, and P”?
    • Do the two accounts of creation in Genesis 1 and 2 contradict one another?
    • How do we interpret the Six Days of Creation?
    • Were Adam and Eve historical figures, or are they just symbolic?
    • Was the Fall a historical event, or is it fictional “mythology”?
    • What have the Popes said about Creation, Evolution, and Original Sin?
    • Were the “Sons of God” who married the “Daughters of Men” really Angels?
    • How do we interpret the account of Noah’s Flood?
    • Are Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob historical figures or legends?
    • Why did God ask Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac?
    • Did Moses really lead the Israelites out of Egypt? Is the Exodus a legend?
    • What is the meaning of the Ten Plagues against Egypt? Were they miraculous?
    • What is the key to understanding the Ten Commandments?
    • Why did God demand Animal Sacrifices and Kosher Food Laws?
    • Why does God allow the Israelites to engage in Holy War?

    If you’ve ever wondered about any of these topics; if you’ve ever been stumped by tough questions about Creation and the Fall; if you’ve wondered how the ancient Church Fathers, modern biblical scholars, and the Catholic Church’s magisterium answer these and other questions, then this is the Bible study for you.

Genesis and the Books of Moses: Unlocking the Mysteries of the Pentateuch

Amazing Study

Thank you for the fidelity and granularity.

Love it!

I love how in depth this audios are and how its explained in a way that is thorough and easy to understand

Genesis and the Books of Moses

Excellent series. Dr. Pitre explains the theology of Genesis in an deep yet understandable manner. This is a series that any lay person can gain knowledge from and deepen their faith. And the dad humour makes me laugh.


The time and precision that Dr. Pitre uses to unpack Genesis is worth it the time to listen in and of itself. I definitely have a new appreciation for the Pentateuch as a whole.

Very Illuminating

I loved this talk. It gave a great introduction into the Song of Solomon, and how it is interpreted. Dr. Pitre clarified this often misunderstood text and prompted me to want to learn more about Jesus as The Bridegroom (so I am now listening to Dr. Pitre's talk "Jesus the Bridegroom"). Well worth the buy.

Very Good Biblical Study on Mary and Her Role in God's Plan

Dr. Pitre does a great job explaining biblically Mary's role and some reasons the veneration that we give her as Catholics. I knew some general concepts about this already, but his talk was very good at bringing these teachings together and expounding more fully upon these mysteries.

Excellent Explanation of the Mass as Biblical Worship

I can't tell you how many times I have used what I learned in this series when talking to both Catholics and Protestants. It is very relevant for a time when even Catholics are confused about the meaning and significance of the Mass.

Another great work by Dr. Pitre

Dr. Pitre does not disappoint in his latest look at St. Joseph, using Scripture, Church History and the Fathers to Get to the heart of who St. Joseph was. What a great resource. I can't wait for the book!
