Jesus Is Risen

I had the privilege of hearing Steven Smith speak at a conference in NY. His talks not only give insight but are clear and in communion with the church. You will not be disappointed in this series.

Jesus Is Risen

The above evaluation is based only on the content....and to be fair I have only listened to the first two cd's. Now as with other CP's cd's... I realize you are trying to kill two birds with one stone, I think the presenter needs to be aware of the two audiences...those in front of the speaker and thosewho will be listening to the tapes. Takinbg questions from the live audience and not repeating the question to those of us not present, cam be distracting. the question should always be repeated - even for thise present who may not have heard the first time and to those of us not present who have never heard it.

    In this exciting, fast-moving series, Dr. Steven Smith, author of The Word of the Lord, guides you through the Bible – on a journey from “the reality and sting of death”…towards the Resurrection of Jesus:

    • Explore the meaning of death in ancient Judaism - and how Jewish views were distinct from other ancient cultures. Plunge into the mystery of Sheol – the shadowy “place” of the dead in the OT.
    • Understand “resurrection” as ancient Jews did, and what it did – and did not mean. Review the details of “the Fall” and death of Adam … and what ancient sources said about it. Enter the “Valley of Dry Bones!”
    • Come to grips with “what really happened to Jesus” as Dr. Smith explores many of the vital medical details of Roman crucifixion – and the spectacular trial Jesus underwent on the Cross.
    • Encounter an early text on “Christ’s Descent into Hell” … and what it means for us.
    • Study the Passion and Resurrection narratives from the vantage point of each of the Four Gospels – as well as the letters of St. Paul.
    • Learn to better evangelize and engage in apologetics regarding the Resurrection of Christ.

    As always with Dr. Smith, you can expect to learn a ton about Scripture, its profound truth and deep inner unity. Numerous passages from dozens of books of the Bible are interpreted with Catholic biblical insight. Fresh Insights come forth from the Church fathers, mystics and saints, popes, and world-class theologians, like Jean Cardinal Danielou and N.T. Wright … are all part of the adventure.
