    Have you ever felt that when Christmas comes around that you’re just not ready? Of all the liturgical seasons of the year, Advent is certainly the most stressful, and it may be the most confusing. Catholics seem to have a good grasp of Christmas, Lent, and Easter. But what is the deeper meaning of Advent? And how can understanding this season help us better prepare for Christmas? 



    In this series, Dr. Brant Pitre shows how a deeper understanding of the ancient Jewish prophecies of the Messiah can help unlock the hidden meanings of the season of Advent. In this close study of the Sunday readings from the Advent lectionary, you will learn about:

    The Second Advent at the End of Time: What will happen at the end of time? And why does Advent begin with end-time prophecies about the Tribulation, the Final Judgment, and the second coming of Christ?


    Jewish Prophecies of the Messiah: How do Catholics know that Jesus is truly the Messiah and not just one more religious leader? What are the most important Old Testament prophecies about the first “coming” of the Messiah?

    John the Baptist: Who was the mysterious figure of John the Baptist? Why did Jesus call him the greatest of all the prophets, and why does the Church spend so much time on him during the Advent season?

    The Jesse Tree: What are the Jewish roots of the Advent custom of the Jesse tree? Where does this tree come from in the Jewish Bible?

    The City of Bethlehem: Ancient Jewish prophecy foretold that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. Why? What is the Hebrew meaning of Jesus’ Nativity?

    The Virgin Birth: Why was Jesus born of a Virgin? How did the Blessed Virgin and St. Joseph react to the news? What should Catholics say to those who are skeptical about this great miracle? And what does it mean for our lives as Christians?


    In addition to the lectures on these topics, this set contains as a bonus Dr. Pitre’s extensive question and answer sessions given during this Advent mission. If you’ve ever wanted to be more spiritually prepared to celebrate the birth of Christ at Christmas, then Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Advent is the Bible study for you.

Comprehensive Look at Spiritual Theology

Good series of lectures. Mature look at prayer that moves beyond petitionary prayer.

Parcel still on tour.

My order was actioned promptly, is all I can say, so far. I watch the tracker as my books enjoy a leisurely voyage across various US mail stops, then around Asia; last notified leaving Narita Airport 2 days ago. I look forward to tracking them to the next point, wherever that will be, please God, it will be Auckland, NZ. and at last, to my small town. Then I can review!

The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Jewish Roots of the Church

I love it. Bergsma is a very astute historian yet had much devotion to the Lord. I am currently on lecture 3. So much to learn here...

Fantastic!!

Dr. Pitre is engaging in his presentations. I have learned so much over the years by reading his books and listening to his presentations like this one. Dr. Pitre, thank you for sharing your knowledge!

Never Received my order

Can’t give it a good review if I don’t receive it. Spent a lot of money on items I ordered 14 days ago, but still haven’t received them.

Hi Gary! I am showing that it was delivered on the 12th of January. If this is not correct please let me know. I am sorry for the delayed shipping. The USPS has been struggling to keep up lately.
