    The Dead Sea Scrolls have been called “the greatest archeological find of the twentieth century,” but most Catholics have only a vague notion of what they are, much less why they are relevant for our faith. In this dynamic video series, Dr. John Bergsma draws on years of study of the scrolls to help explain, simply and clearly, how they help us to understand the Jewish world of Jesus’ day and many aspects of the New Testament.

    In the Scrolls and the community that wrote them we see:

    • Early forms of the sacraments like Baptism and the Eucharist

    • A governing structure that resembles bishops, priests, and deacons

    • Strong emphasis on faithful, monogamous matrimony

    • The first monastic community in Judaeo-Christian history

    • The place where John the Baptist may have received formation

    • And so much more!

    Dr. Bergsma shows how these ancient documents are intriguingly relevant even to theological debates that continue to play out among Christians to this day. This series will give you a fresh perspective and deeper appreciation of the New Testament and the origins of the Church!

The Meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls

A nice historical introduction and overview of the Dead Sea Scrolls. A good understanding of the Dead Sea Scrolls helps to illuminate the New Testament.

Fantastic study

This is not only an outstanding study, a display of knowledge while making it easy and fun to understand, but an important aspect of christian scholarship that brings so much light to our Catholic faith that you catch yourself laughing at how much sense everything makes now. God bless Dr. Bergsma and the CP team for making it available.

The Dead Sea Scrolls for Catholics

Doctor Bergman's delivery of this topic is very good, and easy to listen to. I enjoy his insights and his sense of humor.

The delivery of the package left a lot to be desired...it took from April 16 to May 4th to get to us. In todays' next day delivery environment it leaves a lot to be desired. A warning on your website that delivery of a letter-sized package can take over two weeks to be delivered would lower expectations and increase customer satisfaction.

I am very sorry for the shipping delay. The post office in the New Orleans area has been struggling lately, which causes packages to sit in one place for a week before being moved along in the process. We have spoken to them regarding this and hope they can get it resolved soon

The Hidden King: The Jewish Roots of St. Joseph

Fr Donald Calloway ( author of Consecration To St. Joseph) highly recommended this lesson !!! He said Brant Pitre , Knocks it Out of the Park !!!!! He was extremely excited about the info included inside. He loved it !!! I have to agree !!! This was an incredible experience ! Extremely interesting !!!! If you have a love for St Joseph & want to learn more. This is a great teaching !!! What better time to learn than this year ... The year of St Joseph !!! Ite ad Ioseph !!!

From NZ

Looking forward to the books arriving. Thanks

Great Information on the greatest male Saint

This was such a great series to purchase. Saint Joseph is my patron saint. I learned so much from this talk. One thing I learned is that Saint Joseph was not old as many pictures show him to be. What a refreshing series. Learning about Jesus more through Joseph. Saint Joseph also would have given Jesus his name. Powerful talks. Consider purchasing this series; it will help you grow more in your culture and faith.

The 4th Cup

Tremendous!
