    Why is there so much killing in the Old Testament? Why does Moses pronounce such harsh laws? How can a good God send a flood on the earth and command the Israelites to wipe out the inhabitants of Canaan?

    These are some of the hardest questions people ask about the Bible, but they aren’t new. The ancient rabbis and Church Fathers wrestled with them millennia ago. In this powerful talk, Dr. Bergsma marshals all the resources of Christian theology and contemporary scholarship to address:

    • Why do some biblical heroes seem to “get away with” some atrocious actions?
    • Why are certain biblical stories so unedifying?
    • Why do some laws of Moses permit unjust actions, and have harsh penalties?
    • Why did God command Israel to put the Canaanites to death?

    Dr. Bergsma is convinced that only by grappling with the hard questions face-to-face do we come to a deeper understanding of the nature of God and of the reality he created.

Understanding the Old Testaments Dark Passages

Dr. J. Bergsma tackles the strange and dark passages that when most people read them they just say what? Dr. Bergsma does a decent job of helping his audience to see the passages in a new light.

Feedback to The Dark Passages of the Old Testament

I think the Q&A session is a bit long. It is more valuable to have more content from the speaker.

Dark Passages of the Old Testament

Very good explanation of how to understand the dark passages of the Old Testament. As I listen to the presentation, I follow along on the outline, marking the track numbers as I go. This makes it very easy to find a particular explanation point on the disc. Thanks very much, Dr. Bergsma and Catholic Productions!

How Old was St Joseph

Excellent short seminar behind the age of St Joseph. Well worth the purchase.

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

I ordered dvd I received a cd. Not happy

Hello! I just checked the order and you ordered a CD of the Faith of Abraham and the Spiritual Life. Email me so we can arrange to get you a DVD if that is what you intended.

A great listening experience!

We were giving an adult ed talk on St. Joseph and I found this talk and outline very helpful. I learned a lot and our participants did too! Thank you.

The origin of the Bible and Jesus and the end times.

Doing these as a bible study....next time I need to order the videos instead of CD's
