    Have you ever tried to read the Old Testament from start to finish and failed? Does reading it make you feel like you’re in a foreign land, where you don’t understand the language, the customs, the people, and places? If so, then you’re probably like many Christians, who would like to know more about the Old Testament, but who find when reading it that it is downright hard to understand.

    In this exciting Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre takes you on a personal ‘guided tour’ of the essential people, places, and events in the Old Testament. Over the course of this journey, you will discover the basic keys that every Catholic needs to understand the Old Testament, as well as insights into important and controversial issues such as:

    The Origin of the Old Testament: How did we get the Old Testament, and why do different Christians have different books in their canons?

    Historical Reliability: Did the Exodus really happen, or is it a myth? Did King David exist, or has archeology proven him to be a legend? What about Genesis and the lives of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?

    Holy War and the “Dark Passages”: How should we understand the difficult parts of the Old Testament, such as its descriptions of polygamy and holy war?

    Typology: How are the persons, places, and events in the Old Testament fulfilled in the New Testament and the Catholic Church?

    Prophecies of the Messiah: What are the major prophecies of the Messiah in the Old Testament? How are they interpreted by Jews and Christians, and how are they fulfilled in Christ?

    The Seven Covenants: What are the seven major covenants of the Old Testament? And how do they reveal God’s plan for all humanity?

    In this course, Dr. Pitre’ goal is to give you the “big picture” of salvation history and typology in the old covenant. If you ever wanted to learn how the New Testament is concealed in the Old and the Old Testament is revealed in the New, then this is the Bible study for you.

How to Get through the Bible in an Hour/ Dr Bergsma; The Old Testament-A Historical & Theological...

Dr Bergsma’s presentation IN AN HOUR was terrific & the Excerpts/Outlines were a great benefit-; Dr Pitre’s’Faith & Works’ according to StPaul and StJames was engaging / but I am unable to have my Evangelical friends listen to it all the way through as they try to change the parameters and move to ‘Purgatory is not in the Bible’… I will get to Dr Pitre’s “Old Testament “ study in June….

The Old Testament

I have not started to study yet! I am in the middle of doing the series on Paul!


HAVE not had a chance yet to view it but it looks very interesting and thorough.

Hebrew Scritures

This set is awesome so far. This is not only a great refresher course but as always with Prof Pitre you also get insights as well as a better understanding of the Jewish people and history. Want to better understand the New Testament better? Must learn and understand the Old Testament and this CD course is a great way to start doing that.

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.

What Must I Do To Be Saved? The New Perspective on Paul and the Catholic Doctrine of Justification

We are sharing with a small bible study.
I think you will have more subscribers from this.
It is so well presented and it just adds so much to our study and it works so well with the consecration of st Joseph with father Connely
Too funny that we are going on a pilgrimage with a group from New Orleans 206 tours Greg Terrebonne . We are the only Canadians but so excited and so busy studying and you help so much with the catholic productions.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary

Very thought provoking and informative. Learned alot.

Paul: Unlocking the Mysteries of His Theology

Am still currently listening to Dr Pitre’s lectures and really enjoying it and learning a lot. Being a visual learner, I am really curious to see what he is writing or drawing on the whiteboard like the old creation- new creation circles and the protestant vs the Catholic’s view of the Parousia.
