    Nowadays, skepticism about Jesus is everywhere, and it's spreading fast. For well over a hundred years, critics have questioned the historical truth of the Gospels, claiming that they were originally anonymous. Others, such as the atheist New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman, have even argued that Jesus of Nazareth did not think he was God and never claimed to be divine.

    In this long-anticipated study, Dr. Brant Pitre goes back to the sources—the biblical and historical evidence for Christ—in order to explore topics that are at the very heart of Christianity:

    • Were the four Gospels anonymous?
    • Are the Gospels folklore or biographies?
    • Were the four Gospels written too late to be reliable?
    • What about the “Lost Gospels,” such as "Q" and the Gospel of Thomas?
    • C. S. Lewis vs. Bart Ehrman on Jesus' divinity
    • Did Jesus claim to be God?
    • Is Jesus divine in all four Gospels? Or only in John?
    • Did Jesus fulfill the Jewish prophecies of the Messiah?
    • Why was Jesus crucified?
    • What is the evidence for the Resurrection?

    As The Case for Jesus will show, recent discoveries in New Testament scholarship, as well as neglected evidence from ancient manuscripts and the early church fathers, together have the potential to pull the rug out from under a century of skepticism toward the traditional Gospels. Above all, Dr. Pitre shows how the divine claims of Jesus can only be understood by putting them in their ancient Jewish context. So, if you've ever been interested in the Jewish roots of Jesus' divinity, then this is the Bible study for you.

Fantastic especially in conjunction with the book

This is such a "faith and reason" treasure and delivered in classic Dr Pitre's friendly and good-humoured manner. My wife and I are both listening, and she is reading the book at the same time (I read the book first) - but a very rich "dual" experience.

A lot of content, a LOT of help

Really love these lectures. Most of this content is not available elsewhere, which is surprising considering just how much is already on YouTube. It's awesome how deep this goes into the details of our faith

A must read for all Christians

Growing up as a cradle catholic, I excepted the teaching of the catholic church as the truth. This was enough for me as I believe only through Jesus Christ that I find purpose in my existence. In recent years, there is a calling for me to share my faith to my recently married wife and new to the faith, in a more complete way. If you want to make a case for Jesus (evangelize), this book is a must-read. It lays out fundamental questions that believers and non-believers have and gives an insightful answer to all questions. It gives the readers a steadier footstool to stand on and inspires the readers to share their faith.

The Seven Sacraments: Are They Biblical?

Wives Do What?!
Richard Wise
And the two shall become one

Here’s the deal. Husbands and wives are helpmates to heaven. This is a great presentation on how to do that. Matrimony is about a covenant based on sacrificial love. That would be a God based relationship.

Excellent Resource

Great study on the Mass as Biblical worship. If you’ve ever wondered why the Mass is structured the way it is, this is the Bible study for you. Brant Pitre is a dynamic and engaging speaker, and I highly recommend anything from him.

Very informative.

A wonderful presentation! I now have a much better understanding of this great saint. As I have been commissioned to paint an icon of St Joseph it has been timely and inspirational.

Wives Do What?!

Knowing the Context Removes the Blinders

You cannot understand what St. Paul is teaching if you don't know who he is speaking to and how these people lived in the first century. You must understand the historical background, and no one explains it better than Dr. Petre. He opens up the first century, shows us how the gentiles lived and, more importantly, how Christ wanted them to live. The sad truth is that we face a similar culture today, and it gives me hope that the Church and its teachings survived and will survive again. If I had anything to say about it, I would insist that every engaged couple view this presentation. St. Paul's teachings are as relevant today as they were twenty centuries ago. I've been married for 35 years, but I learned a little more on how to improve my relationship with my husband.

Do I recommend this product to others? Absolutely! Everyone can learn from it.
