    What is your image of St. Joseph? A poor, humble carpenter, or the hidden King of the Jews? An elderly widower, or a man in his prime, the chaste spouse of Mary? The mere legal guardian of the child Jesus, or the earthly shadow of the heavenly Father?

    In this series, Dr. Brant Pitre takes the popular figure of Saint Joseph and open up the mysteries of his hidden identity, his relationship with Mary, and his role as the earthly foster-father of Jesus. In it, you will learn about:

    • How Joseph was the Hidden King of the Jews
    • Why Joseph was a threat to the Fake King Herod
    • Why Herod Murdered his own Wife, three Sons, and the Infants in Bethlehem
    • Why Joseph Accepted of Mary’s Jewish Vow of Virginity
    • How Joseph Hid the Virgin Birth from Satan
    • Joseph’s Relation to the “Brothers” of Jesus
    • Apocryphal Legend of the Elderly Joseph
    • The Biblical Age of Saint Joseph
    • The Persecution of Joseph’s Family
    • How Joseph is the earthly Shadow of Jesus’ heavenly Father

    Many books on Saint Joseph focus on apocryphal legends and private revelations. In this Bible Study, Dr. Pitre focuses on what we can learn about Saint Joseph from the Bible, ancient Jewish and Roman history, and the living Tradition of the Church. As you will discover, although Joseph is silent in pages of the New Testament, when looked at through ancient Jewish eyes, he stands with Jesus and Mary at the very center of salvation history.

    So, if you already have a devotion to Joseph, or if you would like to deepen your relationship with him, or if you just want to understand what the Bible really teaches about the man who was closest to Jesus, then this Bible Study is for you.

Excellent insights into St. Joseph

My devotion to St. Joseph has been growing deeper and deeper lately. So when I saw this series, it combined one of my new favorite subjects with one of my new favorite presenters. Dr. Pitre has yet to let me down, and he delivers again in this series. There was so much insight and background that I didn't know about St. Joseph that this series really unpacked for me. It allowed me to get even greater insight into this incredible saint and role model. I would highly recommend this series, that will teach you more than you'd expect to be able to learn, about this quiet hidden man.

Absolutely awesome Study

We are big fans of Dr Brant Pitre and is was so good to see him do these series of talks in the "year of St Joseph". We found the talks inspiring and illuminating. We have been so used to the stereo type of St Joseph being an old man and Dr Pitre provides amazing insights to the real St Joseph . Even the challenge dealing with the genealogies was profound .

Thanks Dr Pitre , this was absolutely amazing

Gain a Deeper Understanding of the Bible

Dr. Pitre has a depth of knowledge that is awesome, Until watching his videos I had no idea how important the Old Testament is in understanding the New Testament – you can’t have one without the other. Listening to Dr. Pitre, with his enthusiasm for Scripture and Catholicism, is a wonderful experience.

Introduction to Sprirtual Life

Order and check out was fast and easy. It arrived quickly and I hope to dive deeper into the contents of the book by Dr. Pitre.

Keep it simple

Dr Pitre speaks in understandable terms. I heard his class cd’s then book. It’s great for information about growth in the spiritual life and perfect for reference as well as short readings for meditation

Must read!

I am about half way through and am loving this book. Really points out the importance of fasting, almsgiving, and prayer. References Jewish roots and where Jesus reaffirms it. How to apply it. Already changing my way of thinking and making me realize how important it all is, and made me realize where I am lacking and need to do more. And, of course, Brant Pitre always writes/speaks in such an easy to read and understand way, love all his books, CDs and DVDs.

How is 25 hours too short?

This is an amazing series. My initial reactions:

1) 25 hours.?!? Woah...
2) $95 for just downloads..? Seems a bit steep.

Thoughts now:
1) That flew buy
2) Totally worth it!

Once you consider you're getting a college level course and once you experience the quality of the instruction, you will recognize the value of this.

It's amazing to me that this has gone so quickly and I'm still desiring so much more. Definitely going to look into Dr. Pitre's other classes.

Wets the appetite

This talk was excellent and makes me want to dive even deeper into his longer class on the same subject. Would definitely recommend it to someone who's thinking about buying his class and wants to get a feel for what that might be like. Will open your eyes to what we do at Mass.
