55 min. (1 CD / 1 DVD / MP3)
In this exciting talk, Dr. Pitre shines the light of the Old Testament and ancient Judaism on the words and deeds of Jesus to reveal the amazingly Jewish roots of the Eucharist. Using his in-depth knowledge of Jewish messianic expectations, Dr. Pitre shows how the hope for a New Exodus and the coming of the Messiah proves that Jesus really did intend to give us the Eucharist, and it is nothing less than the gift of Himself, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.
In this presentation, you will explore the Eucharist as the New Passover, the New Manna from Heaven, and the mysterious New ‘Bread of the Presence.’ If you are looking to deepen your faith in and understanding of the inexhaustible treasure that is the Eucharist, then this talk is for you.
This has been very inspiring and enlightening journey.
Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist
EXCELLENT!!! I have now watched it 13 times. Seems that I learn something more each time. I bought seven DVD's and have gave them to my family and several friends. I gave one to our Priest and ask him to do a talk on it at our next "Theology on Tap" night. I told him that I know he knew this, but most of us don't.

I love Dr Pitre's presentations but the DVD keeps skipping. It is difficult to watch.
A great resource for families and an eye opener for men! :)
I really enjoyed this talk. It almost made m e break out in tears of sadness at one point and then tears of joy at another. I would recommend it to all. And I am.
I enjoyed this very much And found it very interesting . I must admit
That I had never thought of it before so it answers some questions
Excellent and thorough.
Excellent, used in an RCIA class and a candidate who had a difficult time
with transubstantiation had no problem accepting the sacredness of the eucharist.
I heaps enjoyed having such an in depth look at the Eucharist. I had no idea that our faith was so deep in ancient Jewish roots. Brant Pitre is really easy to follow and makes it easy to understand. God bless
The cd arrived quickly. We gave it as a gift to a graduating seminarian.
As always Dr. Pitre provides an easy to follow study & an abundant wealth of knowledge.
Whenever I watch one of Dr. Pitre's lectures My heart aches for fellow Catholics to see it, too! This is especially true of this teaching on the Eucharist. I loved the book, and I think this DVD captures its main points of which I wish more people were aware.
Also, I LOVE the weekly explanations of the Sunday readings.
Had been given CD of the same topic by Dr. Petri and worn it out listening to it. Have had friends in to view the DVD with me as I feel it is one of the best teachings I've ever heard on this Holy Sacrament.
This DVD was incredible! I used it in our RCIA class. It not only instilled in my class the fullness and richness of the Catholic Faith, but at the same time a greater understanding of the Jewish traditions. Even our pastor(from India) wanted to use it for Dr. Pitre’s presentation and English usage. Great DVD!
The quality and content of the DVds offered by Catholic Productions is constantly professional, both in content and in quality. I rarely shop for CDs or DVDs anywhere but this site!

Brant Pitre just has a gift for connecting the dots of Biblical history that is easy for the average Jo and Joe to understand.
The content of this DVD is awesome - Dr. Pitre does an excellent job of showing the Old Testament types of the Eucharist - I love typology so this was my cup of tea :-) The last example that he gives is really mind blowing - would love to show this to my protestant friends! I'm also planning of getting a group together at my parish to watch it. My only critique is about the sound quality of the DVD - instead of sharp, clear audio, it was a little muffled. Turning the volume up helped a bit, and I could understand what he was saying, but I expected the quality to be crisp and clear. The problem could be my dvd player or just the disc I received, but it is worth mentioning in case anyone else had that issue. Content gets 5 stars - sound quality, however, gets 3.
The bread of the presence, I didn't know about this, when I heard about it, I was looking forward to go Church and pray.Good work.
This teaching revealed profound truths I never connected before. Thank you Dr. Brant Pitre!
This is one of the best lectures I have heard on the Eucharist. My bible study group read the book and did a bible study with it. I purchased the DVD and created a 3 week series at our parish called "The Jewish Roots Program" using the Eucharist, the one on the papacy and purgatory. I had great attendance and feed back on the one for the Eucharist. I think that every catholic should listen to this.
Dr. Pitre is an excellent speaker and extremely knowledgeable. His talks are never dull or boring, and since he is speaking to a live audience, it comes off as being more natural. He is not reading from a script. The subject matter is excellent. I wish I had learned this stuff years ago! Definitely a bargain for $5.57!
This is such a helpful explanation of the Jewish roots, the Old Testament,how it foreshadowed the New Testament and the tradition. This is a wonderful CD for every family to have!
Dr Pitre's book and CD "JESUS AND THE JEWISH ROOTS OF THE EUCHARIST" are a gift from the Holy Spirit for our time. With the loss of reverence for and the lack of believe in the REAL PRESENCE of Jesus in the Eucharist this presentation is ABSOLUTELY illuminating. Although the mystery of faith is beyond our ability to fully comprehend, Dr Petri pulls back the veil of the heavenly event that takes place at mass. By illuminating what was prophisied and fulfilled in Christ' s passion, death and resurrection in a way that is highly readable, like Cleopas in Emmaus on Easter morning my eyes are now opening at the breaking of the bread. I gave this book and CD to a brother who routinely missed mass. After reading this he is now a DAILY COMMUNICANT!!! What else can I say!!! Every Catholic should read this, and every Catholic High School ought to teach this as a MANDATORY religion class. Do this and see people flock back to mass.

Loved this and everything I have purchased so far by Dr. Pitre (and can't wait to purchase more!). The only thing that could make it better is if I lived close enough to study under him in person! Dr. Pitre has studied a long time, really knows his stuff, and I feel very blessed that he chooses to pass his knowledge on to people like me. Thanks, Dr. Pitre!
Excellent study, as usual with Dr. Pitre. Well documented and linked tp both scripture and Jewish and Catholic traditions. Best lesson is that one needs to know the Jewish roots of Catholic teaching in order to better understand the meaning of our traditions and teachings. Very informative.
A superb explanation...we listened to this in our bible study group and all loved it. Thank you
I shared this with our bible study group and we all loved it, will listen again and learned so much...but couldn't download the PDFs mentioned on the cover and CD
Very easy and prompt processing, and quick receipt. CP personnel were very courteous and professional.
This is one of my favorite CDs. I have listened to it several times. It is so full of information that makes it understandable that the Eucharist/Jesus in the Eucharist is foreshadowed in the OT. NT references are helpful, too. There is so much that is helpful and clearly explained in this CD.
I have the book and have read it at least five times. At Dr Barber's recommendation I placed my order before the book was available. I feel the same enthusiasm for the video, Dr. Pitre has done a wonderful job and has enabled the viewers to understand the depths of Eucharist. This video is critical these days when many Catholics don't understand the "Real Presence". Thank you Dr. Pitre. Patrick Hammond
Love this presentation!! It has greatly deepened my love for the Eucharist and understanding of the real presence of Christ. I already have the CD and have listened to it a couple of times. My husband who normally wouldn't take the time for this listened in the car with me and was very engrossed through the entire CD. He loved it as well! I bought the DVD to show to a group at the end of July that I lead at church. If I think of it, I will add to this review then.
Love it and love the book, I read it three times and have loaned my copy to friends and also purchased one for my daughter!
One of the best I have listen to. It really provides some beautiful insights and meaning to the Eucharist.
Recommending to others
This book is enlightening and very accessible. Often Biblical Scholars write in terms that are too difficult for the average reader to grasp, but not this one. It truly does "unlock" the mysteries of the Last Supper, the Eucharist and the True Presence.
It was great and very informative!
I bought a copy of the book, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist at the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin, Ireland in 2012, and I could not put it down. When I discovered that there was also a DVD, I purchased it. I had a group of friends over to visit, about 14 of them, and they were more than delighted with the wealth of information.
If all the children in the Catholic school system viewed thid DVD, the children would really know what a priceless treasure we have in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and those children could convert their lapsed parents!
