    The Dead Sea Scrolls have been called “the greatest archeological find of the twentieth century,” but most Catholics have only a vague notion of what they are, much less why they are relevant for our faith. In this dynamic video series, Dr. John Bergsma draws on years of study of the scrolls to help explain, simply and clearly, how they help us to understand the Jewish world of Jesus’ day and many aspects of the New Testament.

    In the Scrolls and the community that wrote them we see:

    • Early forms of the sacraments like Baptism and the Eucharist

    • A governing structure that resembles bishops, priests, and deacons

    • Strong emphasis on faithful, monogamous matrimony

    • The first monastic community in Judaeo-Christian history

    • The place where John the Baptist may have received formation

    • And so much more!

    Dr. Bergsma shows how these ancient documents are intriguingly relevant even to theological debates that continue to play out among Christians to this day. This series will give you a fresh perspective and deeper appreciation of the New Testament and the origins of the Church!

Nothing Dead here. Interesting and insightful here.

I thought the CD was great. It offered me much to think about and ponder about our Lord while he was on this earth.

Can't wait to share!

I am currently in the middle of the study but it has been awesome. It is very informative and has added another layer of richness, if not more, to my understanding of the wonderful mystery of our Catholic faith.

Stupendously insightful

Cannot convey the significance of Dr. Bergsma’s presentation, amplified by his professional 130+ paged supporting documentation, having every reference, pericope, verse, name, and event of said presentation, freeing the student from jacked-up, time consuming note taking‼️ And expounded with the aplomb of a SME (subject matter expert): poised, profound, subtly sardonic in his apologia...
Teacher, Teacher‼️

Life after Death, a Bible study on the 7 last things

This study could also be titled: the 7 most important things to know in our earthly life, as what happens when we die, affects how we live today.
Brant Pitre is one of the most outstanding teachers of Scripture.
He takes a complex topic, breaks it up into bite size chucks, articulates it in a way that is comprehensible, referencing Scripture.
He covers so much ground in a limited time frame, never a dull moment.
He has a good sense of humor too.
In this study, using Scripture, he helps us understand the many questions we ask about what happens when we die.
It is worth every cent
Michael is just so helpful in making sure, we get to access the material correctly.

Excellent

This is so good that I bought two more to give as gifts!

Wonderful

This is a beautiful and moving study of the Triduum, my favorite time of the year. It’s also my first presentation from Dr. Bergsma, but it definitely won’t be my last.
