    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!

Can't wait to share!

I am currently in the middle of the study but it has been awesome. It is very informative and has added another layer of richness, if not more, to my understanding of the wonderful mystery of our Catholic faith.

Stupendously insightful

Cannot convey the significance of Dr. Bergsma’s presentation, amplified by his professional 130+ paged supporting documentation, having every reference, pericope, verse, name, and event of said presentation, freeing the student from jacked-up, time consuming note taking‼️ And expounded with the aplomb of a SME (subject matter expert): poised, profound, subtly sardonic in his apologia...
Teacher, Teacher‼️

The Dead Sea Scrolls wowwww!!!

There aren’t enough glowing adjectives to use when giving a review on this! I’ve learned so much from this presentation I think this is literally my favorite from Catholic Productions ever and I’ve purchased many many studies and love them all!!!!!!!

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.

Another great talk

Great talk on Abraham, the father of the faith. Dr. Pitre always has great insight, coupled with a great ability to clearly explain things. Highly recommended.

Sin and Salvation: A Bible Study on Romans

Pitre is great

I have not seen a Pitre tape that I didn't like they are all great.

The Nature of Man, the Nature of the Fall

This program provides great insight into the nature of Man and the nature of the Fall. All is well, the New Adam has conquered.

The Best Study Hands Down!!!

If you want facts, this book is for you. However, to love God is to know God, and this book will deepen your relationship with Jesus regardless of what stage you're in. Just watch what the Truth does to your heart. Dr. Pitre has become my absolute favorite to read and listen to for studying scripture. I’m amazed every time and can’t get enough! I will be reading The Case for Jesus a second time to take notes for better cognition. I can’t recommend this book enough, you will Not be disappointed.
